Good luck with your treatment.  Like everyone else, I took a few weeks to adjust to the medicine, but now I ahve no side affects at all.  Keep up the good work and do not miss a dose!

Thanks Red_Dragon... This is what I was looking for . Just had my second dose and wasn't bad at all.  Didn't know if the worse night would be the first or down the road.  So far so good.  Keep everyone posted on your success with Atripla ... I will

  When I first started Atripla my viral load was slightly over 200,000 and it dropped to undetectable after a month.
