im hiv+ and diabetic and also have high blood pressure and my problem is that im always tired. if i exercise i tire more. im taking Atripla and meds for my sugar ang hypertention. what must i do?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Sustiva ( one of the medications in Atripla) and blood pressure medications can cause fatigue.

I have written a lot about the subject since that is my main quality of life issue. Here are a few suggestions:

I think these three references should give you a good idea at how to determine the cause and how to ensure that you get to feel better soon.
