I have taking this for over 2 months and switched to taking in to days rather than nights the last 2 weeks, it makes me feel loaded, when will this pass?

Response from Dr. Henry

If you had sleep problems or a hang over effect in the morning from Atripla when taken at night you may still have problems when taken during the day (and your not sleeping during the peak levels/period for most of the side effects). There are about 5-10% of patients for whom efavirenz causes continued annoying central nervous system side effects that lead to consideration of switching to an alternative drug after 4-8 weeks. KH
