User Comments:

For Lipodystrophy “I’ve been on Egrifta for several months now with shuttle change, I’m not sure if it is working for me sometimes I notice soft stomach where as others it seen hard HIV has caused me to have this large stomach and I’m hoping Egrifta will take it away I’ll give it more time.”

For Lipodystrophy “I have used Egrifta for about 4 years now, except when the drug was not available. I had a reduction in belly fat to a great degree AND lost over 25 lbs. I tapered the drug when I got too thin and stopped for over 9 months due to drug not being available. I believe I have also seen more fat in my face where it wasted before. I started again about 1 year ago when I started gaining weight (but more the old way)Now in the last 6 months my belly is still soft as oppposed to hard before the drug but still gaining weight so I have been dieting. Anyone else seeing similar or different longer term effects?”

For Lipodystrophy “I had a problem with visceral fat as a side effect of my HIV meds. My doctors convinced me that Egrifta could reduce the density of my visceral fat and after using it for just over 7 months my affected area has had a softening and reduction of fat but I have had one unexpected and undesirable effect….my penis seem to be noticeably not as thick as it has been my entire life. While my husband says its no big deal it is to me! Has anyone else had this “side effect”?”

For Lipodystrophy “Just finishing 2 months on Egrifta. 1st month not remarkable but at the 6 week mark I’m noticing a change. It seems as if the visceral fat has reduced and moving to sub-q fat. I’ve maintained the same diet, medication and work out schedule. Just about 7 lbs weight loss but not sure it’s the egrifta. Will check in at the 3 month mark.”

For Lipodystrophy “So far so good been on medication for 15 days have not seen a change test but I’m also working out and eating better to help my outcome. Along with taking fiber and protein daily. Only down side I had this far is very minor soreness to the injection area. Oh and follow the direction to stay below the belly button line because anything above will leave a large bruise on the skin.”

For Lipodystrophy “I have been administering Egrifta now for 2 1/2 month’s, with absolutely no reduction of abdominal fat. I am a thin person with my abdominal fat causing me to be unable to close my buttons and zippers of my clothing. Then I heard of Egrifta thinking it was the answer. Wrong! No results, just a painful irritated, scar tissue in my abdomen now. “
