When taking multiple drugs often hard to sort if a new symptom/problem is due to a particular drug or even an intercurrent new problem (ie food poisoning or gastroenteritis). Some patients will have a hang over like effect the morning after taking Atripla than can cause some nausea-that is worst in the first days/weeks after taking Atripla. I would inform your HIV doctor so she/he can monitor situation to determine if you might need an anti-nausea med or other intervention. If it is a Atripla effect hopefully it will diminish over the first several weeks. May consider taking your other meds later in the day for a while at least to focus on understanding the morning nausea issues. KH
