tribuss and mood swings
Jan 7, 2013

my husband is on tribuss for over a month. Does it cause mood swings. Sometimes he prefers not to talk to me and if I initiate a conversation he does not speak well.

Response from Dr. Henry

Tribuss (Atripla in US) contains efavirenz that can result in some persistent central nervous system side effects such as bad dreams,problems sleeping, cloudy thinking, and others. Suggest discussing with your husband and encouraging him to also discuss with his HIV provider. KH
