Atripla has made me sleepless for months and I hab anoixty from it. My Vl is 150 now and cd4 is 377. How long do I have to wait before I can start another Alignment

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

If the efavirenz in Atripla has been causing (characteristic) side effects for months, it's unlikely that the effects will improve further. Provided that you and your doctor don't have any significant concerns about drug resistance, you could switch to an alternative regimen at any time.

I hope this is helpful, BY

Reyataz/Truvada WITHOUT the Norvir?
