One more Sustiva question .....
Feb 9, 2003

This is James (Sustivaed out in SF). I forgot a question from my just submitted set of Sustiva questions.

If I continue with Sustiva, when is the best time to take it? I feel better as the day goes on, so should I take it earlier in the evening, rather than at l0-llPM? I took it at 7 PM last night but was so dizzy by 9 PM I couldn't stand up. Your thoughts?

Response from Dr. Henry

I would consider trying it an hour or so before bedtime and considering 1-2 weeks of Ativan or trazadone to see if that helps you sleep better. KH

Not having fun with Sustiva.....
