B.Michael + HIV Meds

More than 7 years after learning his HIV-positive status, B.Michael decided to fill his doctor’s prescription and began taking anti-virals on February 29, 2000 — with intention! (“Miss honey one” in his email below refers to his mom, who struggled mightily health-wise during this period.)


The Viramune vial has six pills remaining from the two-month prescription. At a twice daily dose, it looks like he took thm until March 26, at which time he discontinued the meds due to intense side effects.

The vial of Combivir pictured above, also a twice daily regimen, was filled on March 22 but is unopened. Chances are that he refilled his prescription in anticipation of completing his virgin vial of this medication on March 29.
