Dr. will not change my meds. Help. I can't go on.
      08/01/13 07:55 AM

hi perhaps someone can help me. I have been wanting to change my meds for months and he refuses. I have excellent labs. "There is nothing wrong with you. No your HIV meds are not causing your symptoms" I suffer in pain. 2 years no answer to solve it. So i want to change my meds..to what ? i do not know .
Perhaps someone here knows..!

He is "the expert" . oxy dose got increased and making me insane. Literally.
I do not want to take oxy. I want to change my cocktail and see if that helps.

I am pretty sure i have IRIS. (previous doc took me off meds (Atripla made me crazy) and when i re started meds this pain syndrome began.. otherwise i was doing great. doc says no.

There are no other docs to go to. This doc is very experienced with hiv meds..
and until i find a new doc i just cant go on like this.

Currently on Isentris, Reyataz,Abacavir

we have butt heads because he thinks i have psych issues. My therapist told him i am "normal". and i just feel that if we try a new regime perhaps i will feel better. I only have have psych issues with him as he will not change my meds!

I am at the point that I want stop the taking meds all together. this is what happened with Atripla . It made me crazy and that doc would not switch me..

Now i have this pain thing and I can't get a change.
I am a woman, 50 hiv+ 20 years. UD for over 10 years (except when i was taken off meds for 3 months in 2011) CD4 800's

I felt better 10 years ago when i had a UDvl and 475cd4... go figure.
