Atripla and headache question
      #248052 - 10/17/09 11:36 AM

I've been taking Atripla for 1 month now and seem to have kept a medium to sometimes severe headache almost the entire time. I also had two root canals right after starting the regime. Operating on the assumption that the infection from the teeth caused the headache, I've been through three rounds of anti-biotics culminating with 500mg of Levaquin once a day. Could this headache be caused by the Atripla? If so what can I do?

I've been on atripla for a month and never had a headache. So maybe it is the dental work?

I am only in my second month of Atripla and during the first month, went through all sorts of wondering. The second month has been much smoother. I also felt achy, but didn't know if it was the drug or other things. My dreams also get crazier the more, and more fatty my eating is before bedtime. Otherwise, it works well. It better for what it costs!

Been on Atripla now going on year and a half or so..I find it really depends when you take it as to how you will feel. If I forget and take it in the morning instead of at night then I feel drugged out all day, but when I take it normally (99% of the time) then there are no problems.
