Sorry to hear you had sleep issues with Atripla. Were you taking it for  4 years, right?

Anyhow, glad the new combo of Tivicay and Truvada is working well for you and, that life is going okay. 

Best, Jim.

Hey Jim,

Yes, i took Atripla for almost 4 years, it did well to supress my Virus but had always sleeping issues and depression with it. Things are better with the new medication. Had also Corona around christmas time and the only symtom i had was loss of appetite and smell. Though i was freaking out but i didnt have any complications.

Wish you all guys happy Saturday eve!
