Night sweats and insomnia

Sep 25, 2011

I have been taking Atripla for 6 months, with good response. My last blood work had me undetectable and a CD4 of 900. But recently my frequent insomnia has also included occasional night sweats. Is this common or something I should be concerned about?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Night sweats would be uncommon as a side effect, unless accompanied by more profound sleep disturbances (vivid dreams, nightmares, etc). It would also be unusual to develop this after so many months on atripla. I would see whether they continue and if so, might need to have it worked up.
