Here we go again.. New regimen...
      08/27/13 06:54 PM

So I started Isentress and Epzicom after spending a few weeks completely free of HIV meds. I felt great those few weeks. I was actually enjoying my life again. Now I'm on day 4 of a new regimen and I'm starting to feel like crap again. I know, I know... it takes "time for your body to adjust". However I suffered for almost a year of this already on the prior regimen and even a minute more of it seems like eternity! Has anyone else had this problem? I was "OK" up until about a year ago when I started feeling mentally miserable all of the time. We thought switching meds would clear it up but it's starting again. Will my doctor want me to stay on this regimen a month to try it out? How many more regimens will I have to try before I find one that doesn't make me miserable anymore? It seems like I've hit a wall with this HIV treatment thing. If all the medicines are going to make me feel like this I'm just going to stop them altogether and let nature take it's course. I have to report to a full time job everyday and it's not easy when you're suffering inside.

Anxious to hear feedback.
