UPDATE OF MEDS: As some know, I "once again" asked my doctor to change my medication regimen! I took Trizivir for 10 years. It was a good medicine but I noticed that my red blood cells were enlarged. I have always been adherent, but I asked my doctor to change me to Atripla almost 4 years ago. This was also a good medicine, but I knew it was time for a change because of the Sustiva in it. I am so happy that I am proactive with my treatment and I discussed with my doctor that I wanted to change to Tivicay and Truvada. I started last night and I had no side effects and did not wake up today with any effects or the hangover-like state that I was always in with Atripla in the mornings. I had an awesome good night sleep and this is a good thing! Follow your instincts!
