I am a 53 year old physician and was recently diagnosed with HIV probably positive for 3 years. My CD4 count was 216 and my VL 216000. I started ATRIPLA 3 days ago and until now I seem to be tolerating it well, I have been feeling a little spaced out when I wake in the morning, had vivid dreams the first night and have generally not been sleeping well. I also feel tired during the day and am not sure which of these effects are from the drug, are related to my sleep pattern of late, or just from the general stress of what I am going through in my life right now. I am going through a fairly traumatic time at home at the moment and will return to where I am living tomorrow and so will be with my partner of 18 months, and will still have to disclose to him. Fortunately we always practice safe sex so it is unlikely he will be affected but of course I am really nervous about how he is going to respond. I am facing this positively and what will be will be; I just need to be truthful and I will deal with the issues as they arise. I am generally in very good health but have lost a lot of weight in the last 6 months so hope that with good exercise and nutrition I will be able to turn that around soon!!
