I have been taking Truvada with Viramune (neviripine) since 2005. Viral load undetectable since then. However there are now concerns re phosphate levels in kidneys and will have to have it monitored closely (RPB test).

Comment:
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+.
