Jun 15, 2008

I actually have accepted my outrageous dreams at night-It's like drinking the pink punch.I've been on Atripla for 1 Yr now and just started Chantix.Have had an increase of dirreah,But at least I'm not smoking as much or at all.I've read the forums but hav'nt seen anything about these luscious dreams that I'm experiencing every Night.

Response from Dr. Horwath

Atripla is a fixed-dose combination of 3 drugs: efavirenz, emtricitabine and tenfovir. One of these drugs, efavirenz, is known to cause extremely vivid dreams. It is also associated with insomnia, changes in mood and other side effects.
