Stribild - Insomnia
« on: May 31, 2013, 03:10:52 AM »
I've been on Stribild for about 3-4 days so far and I'm having issues with my sleeping patterns. Is it something that passes with time or is it a consistent thing?

         I also experienced insomnia on Stribild but I talked to my doctor and was given Ambien and that seems to work well. I really don't have any other side effects from Stribild and within a month I was 7 points away from Undetectable and then went in recently for my 4 month blood work and exam and my viral load is now undetectable so hang in there and see if it works itself out. I'd give it at least a month and then maybe talk to your doctor about something for sleep. I know you can take melatonin which is a natural chemical that your brain produces to make you tired and able to sleep. You can find it in the vitamin section of any store that sells vitamins or health care shops. Make sure you look up to see if there would be any interactions before taking anything. Ask a doctor or a pharmacist to make sure if you can't find any reliable information on the net. Have faith that it'll work itself out and give it a little time before quitting. Good luck!
