3 patient evaluations for Etravirine

May 20, 2010 (Started Nov 20, 2009)

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV))
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 400 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I had difficulty with side effects from Atripla (the Susteva part) but tolerated them for a year since the treatment worked. I am so much happier on Intelence and Truvada. No horrible dreams, no foggyness, no anxiety. The only side effect has been mild heartburn and gas depending on what food I take the meds with. I love going to sleep, sleeping deep, waking refreshed and not having anxiety. And my CD4's continue to rise while my VL has stayed at 0
Cost: < $25 monthly
