side effects after 2 years with none?
Apr 29, 2011

Hello, I have been on truvada and sustiva for 2 years and doing well, but, for the last 3 weeks I have been feeling sluggish and groggy at times. Could this happen after 2 years on these meds, with a cd4 count over 700 and undetectable? Should I change to something else and what, or will this pass?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

It would be quite unusual for you to experience a new side effect after 2 symptom-free years (though side effects have little to do with your viral or CD4 response to treatment).

I'd sit tight, but consider mentioning this to your health care provider.

Be well, BY

can viraday be taken in the mornings?
