mood changes
Jan 1, 2014

i'v been takin tribuss for 8 months and ever since i started taking this med, my mood changes time a time. Can this be the effects of the med?

Response from Dr. Henry

You may be experiencing ongoing central nervous system/mood problems from the efavirenz in Tribuss (Atripla in US). I would discuss with your HIV provider to see what other factors, medications could be contributing. If the efavirenz appears to be likely cause consider discussion about what alternative treatment options you may have (ie nevirapine instead of the efavirenz). KH
