Don't be afraid of the medications
      #7821 - 07/31/00 10:24 AM

No need for response...just a few thoughts of my own that may help someone else....I was diagnosed as hiv+ 5 years ago.... I am on 3 meds. And doing great.... My viral load is -50 ...due to the doctor that I am under for care...he has done so much for me and my husband...I highly recommend him to anyone...he is really great...I have been on zerit, epivir and a protease inhibitor called crixivan for 5 long years...my stats look great...platelets are great...cd4 is 874.... My doctor has really helped me a lot...no longer a smoker...no alcohol.... Drugs were never a part of my life...he tells me I will live to be a very old lady and I am 40 years old...have 2 wonderful teenagers who stand behind both me and my husband...they talk to their friends and schoolmates all the time...never any problems anywhere...so if you are not on a protease inhibitor...please ask your doctor about it.... I encourage each one who reads this to ask your doc about the protease inhibitors. I thank you for giving me a few moments...please keep me and my family in your prayers as I already include each of you in mine

Thank you for posting. I meet too many women who fear taking the risk!

Be careful with the crixivan that caused me lipodistrophy and fast, I'll never gain in my arms and legs again. Protease are the drugs that cause this. Talk to your doc about maybe changing. I look awful.
