|atripla side effects
Dec 11, 2012
I am using atripla. Its 18 days now. I noticed that I have difficulty hearing clearly and sometimes concentrating and remembering. Is this normal?

You may well be experiencing central nervous system side effects from the efavirenz in Atripla. Side effects as you describe occur in 30% + of patients starting Atripla. Such side effects typically peak in the first several weeks and then diminish by 4 weeks or so to perhaps 10% or so still having annoying side effects. KH
