After a Week
« on: September 27, 2006, 06:40:07 PM »
After a week of Atripla, things couldn't be better. The only lasting side effects are a buzz feeling about an hour after taking it, and that lasts for about 2-3 hours. Pretty cool actually. The dreams are the other side effect, and well, let's just say that I'm really enjoying those.

Things couldn't be better, and I don't know what I was so nervous about. Atripla ROCKS!

Promises, promises...  ;D

One of the dreams had tons of FINE men with bare asses. I have never seen so many firm, perky, bubble butts. My wittle homo heart was all a flutter. I *hated* waking up from that one. I was mentally screaming, "NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" *sniffle* :)


Congrats on such a dip in your VL, Brian!!!!!!!! Slap that Virus down and call it Susie!

Thank you all for the encouragement!

(Jeffreyj gets extra thanks for calling me sexy *blush*)

Why is it that everybody gets a Buzz from their meds except me ?  Although I have pretty vivid sex dreams anyway, however i suspect that my Boyfriend may be fondling me in my sleep....

Anyway, I hope the Altripa does its thing..
