I will be starting Stribild next week. I have been taking Truvada, Rayataz and Norvir for 3.5 years. I can not find a site where those of us who are starting this new med to discuss side effects. Any suggestions.

Response from Dr. Henry

Overall Stribild has been well tolerated with many of the side effects overlapping those of the previously available drugs tenofovor and emtricitabine. Cobicistat and elvitegravir (the new drugs in Stribild) are also generally well tolerated but some gut problems are experience as well as other side effects at a low rate. See
