Just switched to Strilbild
« on: May 28, 2013, 05:12:13 PM »
I was originally on Complera and just got my Stribild today. My doctor switched me over because a slight blip in VL recently. She felt that because I started on Complera when my viral load was over 100K that I was bound to fail and beomce resistant at some point. No side effects so far and I'm thinking positive because I loved Complera.

Have any of you experienced side effects on your first few days and what were they?

Please refer to this thread:  Side effects of Stribild.


The main ones I experienced were gastrointestinal problems (a polite way of saying "the trots"), a little bit of insomnia and mild dizziness.  All those side effects seem to have subsided within a week or two.  Now I don't feel any different.
