Atripla switch to Triumeq
« on: June 26, 2015, 06:42:21 AM »
Hi guys,

I was on Atripla for 6 years with good CD4 count and non-detectable VL, but since I was experiencing really BAD insomnia and horrible night-terrors it was recently decided that I was going to switch to Triumeq.
I have now been on it for two days only and have actually slept a tiny bit better so that is definitely on the upside. I was wondering if there is anyone else here who has done that switch and had had their insomnia/night terrors diminish or vanish? How long did it take before you saw the full improvement.

I was also wondering if anyone know if it's ok to drink alcohol with Triumeq, I forgot to ask my doctor and she is of course now away on vacation and I have a birthday part to attend in a few days. I could always have some wine with article, didn't affect me but I was wondering if anyone knows if it's OK with triumeq too?

Many thanks in advance!

From my limited knowledge of the various HIV regimens, there are no know medications that are contraindicated with alcohol. The biggest worry with alcohol use is that you will miss your dose if you become alcoholic. The alcohol itself doesn't seem to affect the way the medication works.

I do notice that my hangovers are now worse since I started taking HAART though. It's probably because these powerful meds are processed in the liver. My doctor said moderation is key. A glass here or there shoulnd't cause an issue. Heck, even the occasional getting carried away should be okay so long as you don't forget to take your dose.
