Aids medication treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Aids medication treatment


Avatar n tn Hi Sleep disturbances may be caused by underlying physical or psychiatric disorders. Hence, symptomatic treatment of insomnia should be initiated only after a careful evaluation of the patient. The failure of insomnia to remit after 7-10 days of treatment may indicate the presence of a primary psychiatric and/or medical illness that should be evaluated. Both Ambien and Lunesta are used to treat insomnia.
Avatar f tn even if you start treatment early ? i read that it does not but i read that medication. slows down the process meaning you still getting the damange but it being slower .
Avatar f tn re not feeling well then go see the doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. But there is 100% no way you have AIDS because you were never exposed to HIV.
Avatar f tn Talk to you doctor about a specific medication to try. He/she will have recommendations for you.
Avatar f tn No i have not tried that I know Tylenol pm dont help or most generic over the counter sleep aids dont help. Thanks though will be calling ob or pharmacist and asking my questions with them.
Avatar m tn I have a question that probably sound very weird but im looking for a medication that will cause me to have no sexual interest or similar the reason for that i because i have OCD - HIV/AIDS phobia im on treatment and not working very weel i need to get away from sex , i masturbate a lot but still does not satisfy me , i have plenty of women interested on me but i dont want to take the chances they can be infected with HIV , I just want to be a person without any interest in sex at all , like a p
Avatar m tn Once someone has AIDS they will be under treatment and they aren't given antibody tests. ZERO for a false negative test after two years being infected. PCR tests are not approved for diagnosing HIV.
Avatar n tn if that was the case you would have died or very ill by now especially without medication... So its obvious you didnt catch the virus... And its not a concern.
1268578 tn?1274884217 Im scared but I have no other choice as I have major insomnia and anxiety problems without the medication, and have already attempted to stop, causing several withdrawal problems. I am looking for anybody who has shared a similar experience and can relate to me, and help me through my pregnancy. Thank you , I am only 5 weeks.
Avatar m tn Today, HIV should not progress to AIDS with treatment. You have neither so it does not concern you.
1200450 tn?1317496867 t take it seriously because this medication is supposed to make me very tired. I wanted to make sure someone else had this experience before I brought it forward to her.
Avatar m tn EWH / HHH, I was recently reading some article and it got me curious what the life expectancy of people living with HIV currently is with modern medication. From what I understand current medication has evolved so much and is very potent. Is it more of a chronic condition now with modern drugs or not? Magic Johnson is living with it for a long while it seems and looks healthy every time I see him on TV. Thank you.
Avatar n tn thanks a lot that was very helpful. could please answer one more question? would there be a difference between someone taking medication to reduce the viral load to undetectable levels after being diagnosed with aids and someone who has been taking medication to keep viral loads under control all along without progressing to aids at all?
Avatar m tn Hi, On HAART what is the longest people can live post infection to death? Some people say a long 'normal' life... but data shows only up to around 10 years before conversion to AIDS then infection prone and risk of death within 5 years - usually 2-3. Anyone got any idea/ data?
Avatar m tn Yes it means you've developed AIDS. Once you are classified as having AIDS you will always have the classification no matter what your numbers do.
Avatar m tn i have been diagnosed with Aids (5 1/2 years), M.S. (5 years), type 1 diabetes (diagnosed 25 years). Only recently have I started to experience depression. Is this common? I have noticed that my Heath care providers don't even acknowledge my Aids condition. My wbc count was down to 190 and is now around 400+, in good health looking for direction.

Avatar f tn s and the result was positive chlamydia so he suggested me to take the same medication he had. I took azithromycin 250 mg 4 capsules. After 5 months i got tested for HIV, Syphilis, Aids and Hepatitis. The results were all positive. I still didn't get tested for chlamydia. Should I get tested? Since I took the medication a year ago and I didn't have anal sex after that, I only had oral sex once with the same person. What other std's testing should I have?
Avatar f tn I have started to have sleep problems since I when on a new medication called zeldox. Gradually I would sleep for less and less. It got to the point that I would take 3-4 hours to fall asleep and only sleep for 4/5 hours a night. I stopped the zeldox and now I can't sleep at all. I have tried melatonin 10mg at night but it didn't work. I tried many over the counter sleep aids but they do not work. Anyone have ideas what can help me sleep?
Avatar f tn I know that it is ill advised to continue taking prescription medication for sleep. I have tried to get off them, but the desire to sleep wins every time after about 4 hours of tossing and turning with pain. What I do not know is the side effects? Could this be causeing nerve damage? What else are the side effects and it is better to not sleep?
