I started taking Biktarvy around the end of January 2021 or the beginning of February 2021. Since February 15, 2021 i have experienced diarrhea, nausea, faintness, dizziness, feeling hot, mild shortness of breath. All of thoses symptoms have stopped now i have mild headaches, feel like pressure on my brain, and feel irritable. What has been working is at first drinking room temperature water, than i switched to drinking ice cold water. I have been to the ER several times had blood work done, CT scan, and ultrasound done. Every visit has been found of nothing. They asked questions like im i stressed? I told them i dont feel stress. To me it seems like theses symptoms are slowly decreasing, but everyday i have a flair-up of one theses symptoms still. I still have an appetite, and still sleep at night.
I had sever symptoms until my viral load finally started to drop. It took about 3-4 months. The nausea and no appetite stayed around a while bc of the Biktarvy and I still get some bad flair up days. I have been on it for a year now and the viral load is way down. With all that said. I would suggest checking the viral count and t4 cells and maybe see if u can get something for the nausea as well. I usually get Zofran at a low dose to help get rid of that feeling first thing in the AM.
Good luck. Hope it all works out for you
