Just a quick update.

All is good, back in 3 months for my results now. Liver and kidney functioning fine, very limited side effects so all is good.

Did ask for testosterone tests, which came back low so being put on gel to bring it back up.

Can't complain otherwise. Hope everyone is well?

Hey LiveLaugh, that sounds horrible. Glad everything is settled for you now.  Good luck for your tests, drop back in here and let me know how you get on.

So second night on the meds and must admit that I don't recall anything.  May have woken with a slight buzz on but that is all.  This morning I have a slight "haze" but it is very, very minimal.

If I am to suffer side effects related to sleep (dreams, disturbed sleep etc) would they manifest early, or is it, fingers crossed, that I am just lucky?

I am not usually a person to suffer side effects with other medication....however, I was never the type of person who had to take any medication as i never got ill  :(

Hope everyone else is ok?  Not as many "hellos" on here as I thought. Are people shy or am I not "local"  yet  ;D

Have a good day guys

Still having CRAZY bizarre dreams.  Helps me sleep.  Very tired during the day, but nothing I cant force myself to get past.  Just one of those things that if I MAKE myself do something Im GOOD.  If I Sit and think...Im tired...YUP...Im Tired. 

I love the fact that I went after less than 6 weeks and My Vl went from 359,679
down to 1,440!!!  I am amazed. And hoping by next month to be Undetectable.  I hope you are doing well. 

I had Miagraines Prior to starting atripla.  So I am on meds for the same and still have the headaches.
