Get The Facts About HIV Treatment Options

Knowing what questions to ask your doctor can make all the difference in how you manage the disease.

Once you’re diagnosed as HIV+, your treatment plan should start right away and will go on for quite some time, perhaps even years. 

Understanding how the prescribed medications affect the body can empower patients to take control of their treatment plan and steer it in the right direction. If you have any questions about treatment or medications, write them down and have that conversation with your physician. Feel free to address any concerns you may have about possible side effects, how to take medications correctly, and alternative treatment options. Your doctor will be more than willing to get your questions answered.
