New Rx
« on: January 25, 2019, 08:37:02 pm »
Hi All,

Well I get to start a new Rx tomorrow.  I'm going to give my other bottles of Atripla to my partner so I can start Triumeq tomorrow.

My doctors are wanting me to start it was soon as I can so I will.  I'm also thinking the side effects of the Atripla are starting to compound too much and I need to feel better.  I also help the therapist I've started to see helps. 

I know many of you said Atripla wasn't the best for me and I'm now changing.  Just hope the new Rx does well for me.

For me the moodiness and weird dreams were gone 3 days after quitting Atripla and getting Recovir EM and Edurant.

How bad is the side effects?

I'm starting to consider changing meds too due to the serious drowsiness I'm having lately. At some point I could feel my head so heavy that I'm gonna fell any moment if I'm standing. But I'm usually taking it on 10pm and the effects last for 3-4 hours and dissappear around 2 or 3am. It's not that bad but I couldn't social right after taking my dose.
