Thank you all for your support, I haven't really had much of an issue with the Atripla at all, though I do feel the hungover feeling, and a bit of the nausea. I have laughed to myself every morning this weekend, thinking, "If only I was having as much fun as I am feeling!" Sleep is the major issue, i tend to keep late hours with one of my jobs, so I end up having to catch up somewhere, but I feel it will al work out in the end. I will keep you guys poste on my progress, but for now, looks like I prepared for the worst and was pleasantly surprised!!
