cant sleep
Jan 3, 2010

i take atripla and need help sleeping

Response from Dr. Henry

Trouble sleeping can occur due usually to the efavirenz component of the Atripla. You need to discuss with your HIV provider to see whether either a switch to a different dosing time for the Atripla (such as AM), a different efavirenz dose (if levels are high), a sleeping med prescription, an over the counter medication, waiting several more weeks if recently started, or a switch to an alternative HIV regimen would be options for you based on an evaluation of the situation.
