Hello everyone. I have a son thats hiv poz. He is the youngest of 3 boys.I have been with him since the begining of it all.I want to learn about side effects of atripala from either parent or affected one.I am trying to learn all I can for my son, what he is going thru.It makes me sad to see him depress all the time. He always tells me he misses me so much. How is treated by others that are not to sympathetic of hiv.I want him to live happy,I want him to know that I am trying to learn,I hurt when i see him sad. I want to help him by learning from you all.He is a good person,very polite.If there are parents out there that have something like this,please,please contac me.He did say that it made him feel good to know that his daddy was getting involved.

I'm glad that you are getting involved and being a emotional support for your son. I have been pos for 20 years and on meds for 18 . I am also on Atripla now . And I can tell you it is one of the top meds being used . If you would like to talk more you can pm me anytime.

Look up to the Heavens for the answers to Lifes questions .

Side effects vary from person to person. I started on Combivir/Sustiva. The Sustiva made me have very vivid dreams, but I wouldn't classify them as nightmares. The Combivir affected my red blood cells and I had some unusual lab results. I switched to Truvada and my blood tests returned to normal. I'm now on Atripla, which is Truvada and Sustiva in one pill. I still have vivid dreams, but not as bad as the first few months. Other than the dreams, no other side affects. I can live with that.
