I have been taking Sustiva and truvada also Videx. I have been feeling bad and waking confused and very bad dreams and not forgetting things I done the nightbefore sometimes

Response from Dr. Henry

Sounds like you could be having a Sustiva side effect. Often those will diminish after 4 weeks or so. If you have already been on Sustiva for > 4 weeks I would discuss with your HIV specialist whether a switch off Sustiva to another HIV drug is an option . Other problems could be a possibility depending on your HIV situation and other clinical issues so an evaluation by your HIV specialist is recommended. KH
