Managing side effects of Viraday
May 18, 2013

How long will it take for me to stop experiencing the side effects of Viraday intake, such as Lethargy, Fatigue, Hallucinations and a ringing in my ears?

Response from Dr. Henry

Those side effects are fairly common in the first several weeks on Viraday (Atripla in US) and are often due to the efavirenz. By 4 weeks perhaps only about 10% of patients still have very annoying side effects that would prompt consideration of changing medication depending what options are available and treatment history.
