I started Isentress and Truvada about 2 weeks ago and I'm feeling so much anxiety, nervousness and slightly paranoid. I read these could be side effects from the drugs. How common is this and do you think theses feelings will go away? :(

Response from Dr. Henry

Stress, anxiety, and other mental abnormalities can sometimes be triggered by raltegravir or (less likely)your other HIV meds. Also, for some patients, simply starting HIV meds is traumatic. I would discuss your concerns promptly with your HIV provider. KH
