I started taking Truvada and Isentress 4 days ago and have zero side affects. These are the first HIV meds I have ever taken. I do not notice any changes in energy, ability to sleep , mood etc... I hope this keeps up and will update when my levels are rechecked. I am a 49 yr old male HIV+.

I suppose I have been one of the very fortunate ones to be able to take just about any drug that has been given to me with zero side effects. I started out on Sustiva 11 years ago and the only issue I had with it was that I had the crazy dreams that interrupted my sleep, but I could manage that.

Comment:
Upon my very first dosage, I experienced severe muscle aches and joint pain. My doctor told me to stick with it and that these were normal but temporary side effects. 7 months later I had to abandon this drug, because these symptoms grew worse, leading my doctors to put me on Vicodin then Oxycontin, rather than give-up on Isentress. It wasn't worth it, i had to switch meds anyways, and then we ... Show Full Comment
