What about for STD's? Any idea? :confused:

for the past 8 months I have been experiencing extreme Anxiety of catching HIV.
last year November I really had a big scrare. I was sick for almost a month and I was scared to death that my Illness was due to HIV, i spent a lot of money going for different HIV tests ( Elisa, PCR, different instant tests) just to make sure I don't have HIV, I know the repeated testing was unnecessary.
My current situation:
for the past three weeks I've been feeling unwell. I have body aches ( Groin, Neck, under arms and chest), I had a headache for about a week, my mouth is dry and I have fatique. I don't have any swollen lymph nodes or a fever. I went to see the Dr and he suspected a Common viral infection. He gave me some meds but I still don't feel well.

Just like last year I have convinced myself that I acquired HIV, the only difference is I'm scared to death to go for an HIV test this time around. Does anyone else experience this type of Anxiety?


I'm not very experienced but I think when you go something unknown, you're scared, this is human nature. Once you dive into what you've scared of, it'll turn out to be ok. even if you're HIV or not, when you know it, it'll be a relief because the ''unknown'' will disappear.

Secondly, HIV tests should be free.

Thirdly, you're very handsome :D

The same here. In Turkey, you can go to ''any'' state hospital to check it up. I think there are really rare things the government doesnt pay here. For hepatit vaccine, I think you should pay for 30$. For most of the illnesses, we dont pay anything.

sometimes, this causes problem. some people see doctor to get a prescription for sunglasses or colognes :D .

HIV tests / PrEP / PEP / HIV drugs are all free here too. I think the US is basically the only outlier among developed countries that doesn't have a really comprehensive public healthcare.

Getting an HPV vaccine if you can afford it is also a good idea, because it can be transmitted even by wearing condoms. I've been saving up for mine, they're rather expensive here for men and only free for girls due to their risk of getting cervical cancer.

I think most other STDs are more transmissible than HIV, and many are transmissible despite condoms.

That’s because the U.S. in many cases is in effect subsidizing the cost for the rest of the world. You’re welcome, ingrates.

Poor excuse for not having free healthcare. What's preventing the rest of the world of developing as many drugs as the US is the breaking of patents and manufacturing of generics. In Brazil, when something can save enough lives, we say fuck off to the company that makes the drug and start making it ourselves. That's what kills R&D. Not universal healthcare.

Also, even though Brazil has the custom of breaking patents, PrEP from SUS is actually the original drug, we don't make generics. So we're actively paying for it, you're not subsidizing anything because Brazil doesn't get nearly as much financial aid for HIV prevention as some other places, like South Africa.

I'm afraid I didn't get the opportunity. Maybe I will after I quit my job and move away to become a sun-blistered, indigent, outrigger canoe guy. One of these days.

What Americans are subsidising is the outrageous spending on pharmaceutical advertising, which makes up a far larger expenditure than research and development for most pharmaceutical companies.

I dont know why they spend on pharmaceutical advertisements. If someone is ill, they have to take pills. Either that pill or this pill...

In Turkey, there is no advertisement for pills. You cannot even find just one ad on TV or the Internet. You see a doctor and doctor tells you which one to take.

Have to get the word out somehow.

The "word" shouldn't be out about prescription medication. Doctors should prescribe the most efficacious medication for problems that they diagnose in their patients, and they should learn about what's efficacious through peer-reviewed journal articles.

Iamjava wrote:To be fair, doctors are not computers and simply do not have the time to read every peer review and calculate if a new medication truly works better than the older ones. In the case of psychiatry, some diseases (like Bipolar) it's near impossible to even get the right medication right the first time

A good doctor is usually subscribed to several peer reviewed journals and skims them to keep up to date, but of course most of their prescribing information comes from periodically updated reference books such as the British National Formulary or the Monthly Index of Medical Specialities, which are put together by experts who closely examine the evidence for medications.

Iamjava wrote:Which is odd because there seems to be a divide in the medical field: whereas some doctors mainly prescribe new meds, others stick to older meds they understand better.

The ones who readily prescribe new medications are probably the ones most influenced by pharmaceutical marketing to doctors and who care least about robust evidence.

If you’re interested, you should read the book Bad Pharma.

Thinking about HIV, I, don't have any other opinion, of course after analyzing that HIV was created by human against human. Pharmaceutical syndicates create new diseases and create new drugs to "chill" the symptoms but not what is more important, to cure the people. Why!? Because they will lose their permanent customers, in many cases customers for life. It's all about money. People forgot how to make all necessaries from herbs. Many things are considered drugs, because they are harmless and not profitable for them. For example kratomgallery.com is good anti streets and has no side effects like many drugs in stores.
