BTW, AZT is still usually a part of the first line combination given to patients when they start anti-HIV treatment. It is never given on it's own, but always in combination with 2 or 3 other drugs.


I have to disagree here. At least in my friend's case. He just started 3 weeks ago and he is NOT taking anything with AZT in it.

Since we are talking about curing a virus, why don't we start by curing the common cold.

AIDS is 100% preventable, but the common cold is not!

That is the standard regime here in the UK for PEP, though the Dr may change it if the patient is on other drugs or has a particular condition. Over in the US you may have slightly different practices. Remember that AZT is also called Zidovudine.

Maybe it's because I specifically told him (my friend) to tell his doctor no AZT. Just for your information, he takes Truvata and Sustiva. Do any of those have AZT in them? Real question as I'm not positive but his doctor told him that it doesn't.

This question is for anyone in the medical field. Like I said, he started his treatments 3 weeks ago. The other night, he told me that he's worried because he missed a dose for 5.5 hours. Will that 5.5 hours have a detrimental affect? Because he is very worried about it. Thanks.

I knew someone who drank some bleach water...
a full glass, of very dilute bleach water... the kind restaurants use to soak soda machine parts (yep, someone saw the pitcher of bleach water, and helped themselves...)

the person barely lived, and suffered intense chemical burns thruout her entire digestive system...
nearly killed her, and this is from a very small amount, of a very small amount of a dilute...

so yeah, sorry, but it will kill you faster than aids will.

John Lear had a cure listed in another thread...
some fungus from china... strips the protective shell off the virus, so that your body can recognize it as an invader, and allows ones own immune system to attack it...

Sorry, cant remember the exact fungus... and i remembered that it was hard to get, but worked in theory.

First of all: I am not a Dr so any advice I give is purely "for information". However I have worked in the field (as a clinical systems manager) for quite a while, so have picked up quite a bit of stuff from the clinicians I work with.

AZT got a bad name for itself as early on in the disease it was the only treatment available and was given to patients on its own (monotherapy). Given to people with a late stage of the disease it does nothing to combat it, yet the patients still suffered all the side effects of the drug. Nowadays it is always given in combination with other drugs and the dosage has been refined through lots of research. It does still have side-effects (all anti-HIV drugs do), though they keep you alive so most people accept this as a price worth paying. This has a lot of info on AZT:

www.aidsmap.com...

You should pass that site on to your friend, as although it is a bit dry it is the one that many professionals use for information and will help your friend discuss things with his Dr and make informed decisions about his care.

No, they are seperate drugs. BTW it is Truvada.

He should talk to a an HIV specialist Dr (other Drs won't even have heard of the drugs), or even better a specialist pharmacist. We have 9 specialist pharmacists at our unit and they will know more than the Drs about the very exact effects of the drugs, such as the timing of taking them.

However from what I know then he really shouldn't worry at all. Most Drs would consider your friend some kind of ideal patient for worrying about a few hours, many patients are much more "chaotic" and their treatment is still effective. The timings on taking the drugs are based around the absolute most optimal times over the long term. The difference over 1 day will probably be negligable. Your friend will be taking these drug for many years and there will always be times when he can't stick to the exact regime.

If your friend would like a second opinion about his care or advice on anything then please U2U me and I can ask a specialist for you.

very good book that's hard to find anymore written by the discoverers of the aids virus entitled What They're Not Telling You About Aids. They state that aids is a hardy virus capable of sustaining virulence for 15 days on a countertop. also that it has an affinity for the tubercle bacillus making it capable of becoming airborne. louis pasteur, on his deathbed, said that "it's not the germ, it's the environment", meaning that with a healthy immune system one can be infected with many different types of germs and still not be symptomatic or contagious. there are many cures for aids (as there are for cancer) but keeping people only well enough to work is big business. people will generally give their life savings and go in debt for the chance to live a little longer. check out IAHF.com. the guy who runs this site is fighting for our right to have access to dietary supplements/alternative health choices. he also gives links to aids/cancer treatments. lots of good health info. rife machines can be built, gerson diets can be followed, blood purification is achievable through a variety of methods-none of which include bleach. we have options. azt is just junk food for viruses.
