LOL! We definitely plan our travel to follow the sun. Neither of us enjoy winter. And, well, with retirement we get to do that.

Thanks!

We won't be back in the US til possibly August. His drs want to a three-month block to see how he does with a change in meds. We have a family wedding in November, so figure we'll arrive in mid-August and that will give us the 3 month window. We really don't want to be in cold weather! And that part of WA state is really cold and wet in November - plus it gets dark by 5 PM - depressing!!!

Keep me posted. In the meantime, I'll research other meds that's just one pill a day.

Read about Atripla -- probably not a great match. DH is on Lithium for bipolar, plus has had all the various hepatitises. Currently all inactive, but still not good with that particular med, at least according to the info I've read.

We'll talk with this person at the clinic in WA, and see what she thinks.

I'll give the info to DH. His digestion totally changed with the meds, especially Crixivan. Better now that I finally convinced him (along with several drs) that he's supposed to take his meds with food!

We'll talk to his health person when we're back in the US - I'll remember this, Atripla.

Try Atripla. It's a one pill a day regimen and I know a lot of people taking it and they haven't experienced any side effects.

The digestive issues is separate. There is good bacteria and bad bacteria in your gut. I did some research on it and now I'm taking ProBiotic pills. I went to the whole foods store and told them my situation and they gave me: Brand Name Garden of Life: Raw Probiotics for Men and it contains 85 billion live cultures and 31 Probiotic Strains. I eat 3 x a day and take 3 capsules a day. Even if I don't eat lunch, I take a capsule and my digestive problems went away. the label reads it can be taken with or without food.

We're doing well, how are you?

Does anyone have info on the latest one-a-day pill regimen? How it's working for people? Is anyone in the group on this? DH is wondering about it, and we were going to give it a try during the summer when we're back in the US.

Just wondered if anyone had problems, or was doing well with this, and if it has problematic side effects. (We need to do something with his digestive issues from the meds.)

Thanks Kelly, and thank you for making this team. Its great that I can get support here for this and my weight loss on the same site. I'm also on a team for anemia and hypertension to get support for myself.
