Hello and thanks for posting.
As I understand, Forstavir is a generic formulation of tenofovir, FTC and efavirenz. Unlike many other HIV medications, it's generally best to take efavirenz-containing medications at bedtime, preferably with an empty stomach (or at least separated from your last meal be a few hours) to decrease risk of side effects.
Hope that helps, BY
