atripla works GREAT for a lot of poeple some get some side effects,however they can be minimal and subside after a couple of weeks, just take it a day at a time and before you know it a month will have passed you by. good luck and let us know how your making out luckyone.

Not surprised you didn't experience any side effects after 2 days.   I'm starting 3 months now and the only issue I'm having is a lot of dreams (which I'm going to start a diary about because some of them are awesome, especially the sex ones. WOOF - wish I knew his name!).    I've never felt better and sorry it took me so long to get my ass in gear to start treatment.
 
Remember everyone is different - you're system is digesting a powerful combination of drugs.  Like was said before, just take each day at a time.

I actually experienced the most vivid dreams and the worst side effects very early on (the first week) after that everything seemed pretty routine.

well, another update, this is a great website. i was so nervous about starting meds, i didn't want the drowsiness, or the nausea, or drunk feeling. I know some people think this is crazy, for me to update every other-day but it helps. so 6 days later, nothing. not even the good dreams, or at least not that i remember. I just hope all is going as well inside as out!! I hope it continues this way

Hi lostintx, sounds like you're doing great, actually better than most if you've had no side effects at all!! Mine were minor...and still haven't had any of the "super" dreams!!! My 6 weeks labs this week showed great results, which I think most people also have with this regimen. Wish you continued good luck!! esper
