Triumeq (abacavir / dolutegravir / lamivudine) for HIV Infection: "I was the first reviewer back in Oct 2014 and did an annual review last year. I've now been in triumeq for 2 years after 2 years in atripla. Back in 2014, I had been waiting for trial to be released after reading all the great trial results with minimal side effects. After 2 years, triumeq remains awesome. I have no side effects and have maintained an undetectable VL for 4 straight years. HIV has not slowed me down a bit thanks to this great medication (I'm a competitive athlete). I was worried at first about cardiovascular issues. I've run countless races, including a iron man distance, while in this drug. I'm extremely happy with this med."

Triumeq (abacavir / dolutegravir / lamivudine) for HIV Infection: "Ok I was on Atripla for years it works but with bad nightmares and not feeling rested- switched to Complara loved it- no side effects felt great. Nurse Practitioner said after a couple years it was building toxicity in my kidneys.. Not sure if that was true but we switch to Odefsy - almost immediately started having toxicity side effects.. Nurse blew off my concerns and complaints of pain, headache , dizzy, tired, no concentration etc So I got rid of her and went to a doctor now I'm trying Triumeq.. It's ok I think I'm adjusting to it, initially it made me tired, I do sleep later now and am a bit slower getting going in the morning which I don't like.. I do feel a bit hot at night after taking it.. again I think I'm adjusting may take in AM"

Triumeq (abacavir / dolutegravir / lamivudine) for HIV Infection: "I started taking Triumeq almost two years after my diagnosis, I gave the drug a 9/10, as Ive never taken another. I started on the medicine after months of being sick and immunity loss. My viral load was rising and my cd4 was falling fast due to lifestyle choices. Getting on this medicine was a hard decision, but one I would make again, and this time I'd do it sooner. Within no time I was undetectable and my immunity doubled. My Dr told me it wouldn't work as quick as it did, so we were both pleasantly surprised on my numbers. It has now been a year, still undetectable and now 9 months pregnant with a healthy baby boy. I would recommend this drug to anyone with HIV who is offered it by their doctor. My side effects include upset stomach."

For HIV Infection: "Was diagnosed on June 28, 2016. Stated taking Triumeq on July 29th. Side effects I experience, EXTREME Fatigue and moderate Depression. I'm literally tired like before i go to bed up until afternoon of the next day. I feel depressed after I take my daily dosage and usually last all day. Before I started taking the medication, my VL was 20,000 and CD4 was 434. I'm just waiting for my next checkup to see what my VL and CD4 is."

Triumeq (abacavir / dolutegravir / lamivudine) for HIV Infection: "I was diagnosed in May '16 with a VR of 1410 and CD4 of 410. Due to the low VR resistance testing wasn't conducted (only above 2000). I didn't start treatment until June due to work travel, the Doc didn't want me to start medication and be away from the medical centre. Started treatment in June. After reading about other experiences here I decided to medicate at night, around 1800 every night. I also take medication for slightly elevated blood pressure. I was already taking it in the morning so decided to keep the two separate. Not sure why - I just thought it would be better to keep the medications separate. After a month I was tested again and my CD4 has risen to 680 and the VR is now undetectable. No side effects & feel great!!"

Triumeq (abacavir / dolutegravir / lamivudine) for HIV Infection: "I started this medication within three weeks of diagnosis in September 2015. My initial concerns and scares about side effects quickly turned out to be untrue. Apart from tiredness and join pain in the first few weeks, I have virtually no side effects from the medication. I take it in the evening and aim to have 100% adherence. It is remarkable what science has done in the last 30 years since this condition emerged. One of the drugs in the pill, dolutegravir has a long binding time and so far has had no resistance.I look forward to the results of trials with dolutegravir monotherapy. This would be even better in using only one drug to control the virus. I'd recommend Triumeq to anyone starting treatment or those considering a switch."

Triumeq (abacavir / dolutegravir / lamivudine) for HIV Infection: "Was infected back in October 2015. Started TRIUMEQ 25 days ago. First 5 days were unbearable hated every minute of it until I changed my time taking the pill to nighttime. So far 20 days later no side effects anymore used to get headaches, joint pain, muscle pain. Diagnosed with VL of 10,000 and CD4 of 562. Will update once I get my monthly result next week. Trillium Drug Benefit covers most of out of pocket and my families insurance covers the rest. I only pay around 450$ a year."
