my doctor also just switched my treatment to Viraday. it s been 5 days i feel tired and lazy. my body bones hurts like someone was beating me.

Dear doctor just need to know what are the Symptoms to stop viraday?? thank you

Response from Dr. Henry

It is rare for a person to develop severe bone pains due to Viraday (Atripla in US) soon after starting. Feeling tired and lazy could be a side effect from the efavirenz--those symptoms usually diminish after 2-4 weeks. Before stopping I would discuss with your HIV doc-stopping meds can have serious clinical consequences (including development of resistance) for some patients. KH

Raspberry Ketones
