I started taking atripla drugs some few days ago and am having a problem at night,what is the best time to take the medicine?

Response from Dr. Henry

Problems with sleep/dreams are very common from Atripla during the first weeks (often due to the efavirenz). For most patients those improve after 2-4 weeks. For a modest subset of patients the problems experienced are lessened if the Atripla is taken in the AM. Situation for an individual patient can vary so discussing with your HIV provider is recommended. KH

cd %age 27 after 1 yr on atripla - aged 50 What's average
