Day 5 of "A TRIP" la
« on: May 08, 2011, 10:54:41 AM »
Now I know how this pill got it's name cause it definately is a trip..But I am happy to report that after 5 days I am doing much better with it..My sleep is becoming less interrupted and my dreams are becoming more "enjoyable". I'm still very groggy when I wake up but that usually goes away after I have walked it off and ate. Only problem I am having is fighting that urge to eat late at night the way Im so used to doing..Eating dinner at 7 or 8 and then leaving room for the pill is killing me..I'm so used to eating snacks right before bed..But I don't wanna set off anything bad.

Good news.

In due course you can experiment if you like, the no food thing is very individual.

hi AC,
once you take it for a while, you will be able to eat more and it not bother you.  The big thing you have to watch is eating things that have a lot of fat content in them, but nowadays i can have a snack or something and it doesn't bother me at all.

I concur.  The sustiva in the atripla is intensified with high protein, so a snack that is very low in this should be ok!  I'm glad you were able to make it through and it will hopefully be all better by week 2 or 3.  Don't give up b/c 1 pill once a day is so much better!
