Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

It's good to hear that you're taking medications and have successfully suppressed your virus.

Medications should be well tolerated, and your symptoms suggest that your Complera might be causing problems. It's important that you and your provider look at other possible causes of weight loss and sleepiness, but if these symptoms persist, a switch to another recommended regimen could be in order.

Hope that helps, BY
