Managing my treatment

HIV medicines and side effects

You may experience side effects with your HIV treatments. While lots of these can be managed with your healthcare team, you may need to switch your HIV medicine. The Positive Perspectives Study found that people who spoke about treatment concerns with their healthcare team were more likely to report better overall health outcomes. By having open, honest and regular conversations with your healthcare team, you can continue to feel confident with your treatment management and they can continue to provide the best care possible for you.
