@downinthedumps‍ , what are your #s like? How long have you been taking Biktarvy? 

I've never taken Biktarvy, but many of my clients are on it. As far as side effects, most don't experience any, but some will get the typical nausea or diarhhea, which will usually pass after a couple of weeks. Some have stated upset stomach, and find it better when they eat when they take it. One client stated he had severe headaches and rash after one pill, and stopped taking it before consulting with Dr, going back to previous regimen. Dr did not feel it was due to Biktarvy as it contains same meds client was on before. There have been a couple of my clients whose side effects were worthy of discontinuing Biktarvy. Just remember, every one reacts differently, and always consult your Dr before discontinuing any meds, even if you are experiencing side effects. Thanks @Courtney_J‍
