dreams and hiv
Oct 8, 2004

i am on combivir twice daily and efaviranz 600mgs at night but get really weird dreams is there anything i can do to stop them

Response from Dr. Henry

Weird dreams are fairly common among persons taking Sustiva. I sometimes prescribe a sleep aid such as lorazepam or trazadone for a while to see if that helps a bit. Switching the Sustiva to the AM works in some cases so that the effect has worn off by the late evening. If annoying and persistent, some patients switch to another HIV med depending on their past treatment history and overall situation. KH
