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
