Hi I have started on Atripla 2 Weeks with most of the Side effects most people get. Before I started on the Meds I felt fine, Now feel very weak and tired will this wear off so I can go back to work, and if so how long do you think it will take ??

Response from Dr. Henry

Many patients experience often impressive fatigue/sleep problems during their first weeks on Atripla (mostly due to the efavirenz). For most patients those symptoms diminish by 4 weeks on treatment with perhaps 10% still having some persistent annoying side effects attributable to efavirenz. KH
