So how does Atripla affect you? And what will you be doing? Diving? Operating heavy equipment?

For me, I don't even notice it, though even so, just being up 24hr without sleep would do me in!  In any case, don't eat for 2 hours before or after taking it to avoid the dosage being higher in your bloodstream.

You can always talk to your doctor for advice, though I doubt most will suggest not taking it despite the very minimal risk for missing a single dose. Make it a habit however and problems are sure to come your way in the form of resistance.

24 hour shift?  What do you do, again?  That's rough.

as long as you take it everyday, it doesn't really matter just pick a time that works for you and your shift.

I figured it had to be military.  I remember our roommate having to do it, when he was still in.  Anyway, I hope it doesn't cause any issues.  By that, I mean your meds affecting you, as far as making you even more sleepy than you would otherwise, or feeling strange.
