For HIV Infection: “taking this combo for 2 months now together with rezolsta (darunavir/cobicistat) feeling nausea dizzy have severe rash (not sure from meds tho) and gained weight. All these HIV meds have terrible side effects but seem to keep you alive.”

Epzicom (abacavir / lamivudine) for HIV Infection: “I've used this since first diagnosed and starting HAART in 2004, and it's worked extremely well: my numbers have never been below 1200 since 3 months after stating it. I first used it with Sustiva, and now use it with Isientress.”

Epzicom (abacavir / lamivudine) for HIV Infection: “Epzicom, Reyataz AND Norvir triple combination. It is expensive, but ALL hiv medications are expensive and there are programs to help pay for the medicine if you have a low wage since most of these HIV medicines cost between $3000 and $10000 or more. This one in combination with Reyataz and Norvir has brought my CD4 level up to 1100 and an undetectable viral load. I do have side effects from the 3 medications, such as nausea and lethargy, but I take Marinol/Dronabinol to take away the nausea. I am happy with my CD4 count and viral load on this combination of medicines to fight my HIV/AIDS infection.”
