truvada + Kaletra psychological effects
Oct 13, 2012
Dear all, I am on Truvada + Stocrin cure since 2 years. 6 months ago I starting waking up arounf 4 o'clock in the morning with terrible anxiety. My doctor prescribed Kaletra instead of Stocrin but the situation remained the same. Do you think it might be Truvada causing the sleep disorder and anxiety ?? Isn't there any drugs that does not disturb the psych ?

Hello and thanks for posting.
This suggests to me that the cause wasn't the HIV medications at all, though you could try interrupting all of your medications to see if the Truvada is playing a role (I would doubt it).
At this point, it'd be worth taking a good look as to whether there are other causes, including sleep or mental health problems.
Hope that helps, BY
