Anxiety and Depression worse since using Isentress and Truvada
Jun 10, 2012
I have a question regarding Isentress. I began using it along with Truvada in 2009 and noticed my mood going down a bit. In 2010 my anxiety substantially increased for no apparent reason. I have been on HAART since 1997 when I first began with Viracept and Combivir but because of cholesterol issues and some lipo in the face, the regimen was changed to Truvada and Isentress. I have had depression and some anxiety since childhood(I am 47 years old, currently), but the anxiety and low mood I have now are worse since I have been on this combo.

Hi and thanks for posting.
Depression has only rarely been associated with your medications.
