Re: Atripla side effects (what not someone else with Atripla Drama)

I started Atripla January 2009. After two years of vivid dreams (waking up screaming), panic attacks, skin rashes from the sun, throwing up bile each morning and the squirts) I switched to Truvada and Viramune. I still had skin rash problems from being in the sun and threw up daily bile a half hour after waking up (no matter what antacid I took) as well as morning cramps and squirts. I then this past Spring switched from Truvada to Epzicom and ever side effect I ever had is gone. GONE! So, I would see if you can take Epzicom and Viramune instead of Atripla. Yah, it is two pills instead of one, but it sure helped me. I started a blog the day I found out I was HIV. You can go back in time at my blog an see what daily life was like up to this day. The link is below. Good luck.
