|I HAVE TAKEN SUSTIVA AND CANT MAKE IT PASS TWO DAYS, WHAT SHOULD I DO, DONT EVER WANT IT AGAIN
Nov 28, 2006
SUSTIVA MAKE'S ME SO RESTLESS, I DONT SLEEP AT ALL FOR A DAY OR SO AND I CAN GO TO WORK BECAUSE I'M SICK FROM IT.
Response from Dr. Young
Sounds like you're having an unusually difficult first days with efavirenz (Sustiva, Stocrin). These symptoms usually improve in a few days, but for a few patients, the symptoms are severe.
In your case, I'd contact your healthcare provider or doctor as soon as possible to discuss your symptoms; a switch to an alternative "third" antiretroviral medication might be in order.
Hope this helps, BY
