Its typical side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include diarrhea, nausea and changes in the shape or location of body fat. Can anyone that's been on it chime in?

REMUNE When Can I Get the Vaccine Shot?
6 Replies RSS
When will Remune be available i need this vaccine desperately? Why has this not been approved yet i am sick from taking the drugs i vomit daily :( ## The developer is actually now working on a different medication that combines Remind with something else. It has not been presented yet, for FDA approval. And it is not a vaccine, nor a cure, if it does pass evaluations and get approved, it will only be another treatment therapy. I am sorry that the medications make you so ill. Do you take anything for the nausea? ## There is nothing worse than the miserable side-effects associated with toxic drugs. A therapeutic vaccine such as Remune would help dramatically. ## I just read about the Remune news finally being submitted for approval. How long does it take before the FDA will approve this v...

It doesn't say that it's intended to cure anything, but rather "treat" the condition, like most prescription medications. And as far as side effects are concerned, I've actually seen some sites list two pages worth of symptoms for this particular medication....

5 Replies RSS
I've been doing very well with Complera since January. I have been wondering if I can take 5HTP with it. I am a 50 year old female in fairly good physical health but I'm really depressed and low on energy. I use to take 5HTP a few years ago and had great results with it but need to see if it can work again. Don't want to mess up the Complera so any help would be appreciated! ## Hello, Bear 50! How are you? I didn't find any interactions listed between them in the MedScape database, but it's always best to double check such information to be safe, but if your doctor approves, there shouldn't be any problem with your taking it. According to the FDA, Complera is used to treat HIV and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, headache and insomnia. Is there anything...

Cannot swallow tivicay. Is it ok to crush this medication. If so how much of its potency is lost? ## Hello, J! How are you? I'm not seeing anything saying that can't be done, though you should double check with your doctor or pharmacist to be sure. And it should not lose potency due to breaking, cutting or crushing. Side effects may include: body fat redistribution, insomnia and headache. Is there anything else I can help with?

Research I came up with quote to increase extra capsules for one day a week .eg.., (2) caps 6 days &, 3caps 1 day, that hydrea works on a weekly basis rather than daily dose. Researched,support groups, peer reviews, no answers, Appreciate any informations or eads ## Hi adail, How are you? I don't have experience with this medication personally, but in my opinion it would probably be best to just go along with what your doctor suggests as far as tapering is concerned. This is because each individual may respond differently to certain weaning methods. However, if the information you're finding onli...
