My struggle with my medication

"Looking after my health TODAY gives me a better hope for TOMORROW" - Anne Wilson Schaef

DISCLAIMER: What failed on me does NOT mean that it may not work on you. PLEASE listen to your body and go by it accordingly. I know some of my friends who are doing well on Efavirenz. Unlike mine, their CD4 has improved to higher numbers while on that medicine. Depression is one known side effect of this HIV medication, but does not happen to everyone.

 Hello and wow.. hope you are ok now... I have had my buddy(that I really want to get rid of) for around 20 years nad I know that feeling of switching meds...and then going crazy. I have depression nad there are just some HIV meds I could not take because of it.. OMG the mood swings. seeing little black spiney balls running around on the floor!.

Now before my new doctor gives me ANY drug I double check and triple check reactions to HIV meds.

Thanks for shareing your story,Peace!
