My Days on Atripla
« on: January 25, 2012, 02:37:45 PM »
I am writing this to get some inside help with the med Atripla. Days 1-10 were hell but it seems to have gotten better the past 2. Nausea, headaches, fatigue etc... I am curious if anyone else has had this bad experience with it and what changes they made to help they're body adjust. My cd 4 was at 466 and i had 300,000 plus viral load after a year and a half of being off a three med regiment. I have an appointment in Feb but man this atripla is wearing me ragged. Thanks for any responses.

I love Atripla, its easy to follow.
My CD4 went from 124 (13%) to 234 (23%) cells/ml in about 9 weeks.
My VL is still fluctuating and havent reached UD levels, but within the same order of magnitude, I guess it will be alright later.
The secondary effects were bad at the beginning, the feeling of being drunk disappeared within my first two weeks.
You will be fine and you'll learn to love atripla.

 atripla was my 2nd treatment of my virus.
on my 1st I could not get cd4 above 90
on atripla my cd4 went above 400 with UDvl
I did have some side effects but with they great numbers I just figured I would get used to it.I got to the point after 30 days my body adjusted.
my worst side effect was my sleep CRAZY DREAMS I MEAN WAY OUT THERE SO REALISTIC.I got to the point that could not tell the difference between sleep and awake..Even my sleep went back to normal after 4 or 5 weeks..
