New Treatment with Viramune and the new siedeffect
« on: September 12, 2012, 04:12:30 AM »
It's been about 3 weeks now since I switched to ViramuneRX/Truvada combo and happy to announce that my upper stomach/ribs bloating is gone and finally my chest muscles juts out more than my tummy and when I eat a lot, it is my lower tummy that comes out and not my upper tummy. Also, my runny stool has stopped as well.

One downside is I am feeling tired and nauseous (hoping that goes away after a while) . I can still give my 100% at the gym, but things in general feel bit slower and lag-gy. I can't quite put my finger on it, but I am also feeling moody and bit depressed as well. I start to "wake" up once my next dose is due though. Anyone else experience this with Viramune? I wonder since Viramune and Sustiva is a same class of drug and I had horrible reaction with Atripla, I wonder if Viramune would do something similar.... Any thoughts? Newt?

I have been on Reyataz/norvir/truvada combo since 2007.
