Sustiva sleep help
Jun 8, 2005

I wanted to pass on info on Sustiva sleep help.

I was experiencing all the Sustiva side effects and finally had my doctor put me on low dose Amitryptiline (sp?) which I take each night with the Sustiva. The nightmares went away and i now sleep through the night. It was a life saver!!

THe only side effect is that I have become sensitive to sunlight, so be sure to wear sunblock.

Response from Dr. Henry

Thanks-amitryptiline is also a good option ton consider for many patients having sleep problems with Sustiva. KH
