Q and A


What happens if I have a gap in my treatment?

I am in between insurance companies right now due to getting a new job. I might run the risk of not having insurance and not being able to afford my meds. My question is, if I were to stop taking my meds, which I know is not a smart move., will I begin to feel sick.

The only reason I am considering this is because this new job pays extremely well and can change my life around.

Any advice I can get on how to deal with this kind of situation would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks for getting in touch.

What meds are you taking? How long do you think you’ll be off them for? Is there any chance that you can get a longer prescription? Where in the US do you live? I’m asking this because if there’s a possibility that you may be without meds for a while, then I may be able to find you some for free.

If you could get back to me, I’ll be able to help you.

    Hi Lawrence,

    Its good to hear that you’ve started meds, especially because you’ve had a drop in CD4. How are you doing with the Atrozia?

    Since you developed peripheral nyrhopathi has it been treated? How’s your TB, has it all cleared?

    I was diagnosed last year 2016/01/07 with a CD4 of 608. I started 6 months TB treatment and stopped at 5 and a half months because of peripheral nyrhopathi. My CD4 on the 17/02/2017 was 358. I’m now taking Atrozia.

    Hi Victor,

    I’ve discussed this with a colleague and their advice is that you should contact Project Inform. They should be able to help you out.
