This video blog is part of the series "My HIV Journey: Videos of My First Months on HIV Meds, and Where I Am Now." Check out a full list of entries in the series.

I have made many videos concerning Atripla, the medication that I take for HIV. Any medication on the market has side effects, just as Atripla does; but after a few weeks they should subside for the most part. The most important thing to consider if you are thinking about starting medications is what you and your doctor have talked about, and whatever research you have done. I would recommend Atripla to anyone thinking about starting medication.
