Change of medication from Eviplera to Odefsey
« on: November 23, 2018, 09:33:54 am »
I have recently changed my medication from Eviplera, which i got on really well with and had benn taking for several years with no side affects, to Odefsey,  but since changing medication I seem to be generally bad tempered and depressed which is not normal for me........ has anyone had any similar side effects from Odefsey?

I've done the same change 5 months ago.  I also have ceased antidepressants.

I'm only tetchy with folks when I'm tired.

Why did you change meds if they were ok?  Ripivirine can have neuro side effects  in some people .we are all different . If the side effects continue tell your dr.
