I got the 16 page consent form for the drug trial for the HIV drugs and I think I am going to give it a pass. It requires me being at the hospital almost every 2nd day for 22 days (I live an hour to an hour and a half away from the hospital depending on traffic) with 5 days of overnight stays where they take blood samples every half hour for 24 hours to test how the drugs are metabolizing. Two HIV drugs on top of my Hep C drugs. Sides sound similar to the Hep C sides so one on top of the other does not sound good. I guess also they have had one death. No final decision yet but am leaning very hard towards the no side at this moment.
