Hello All-

Of course, I've spoken to my doc about these things, but value the thoughts of anyone with firsthand experience.

1.  I've been on ATRIPLA approx. 5 months and have had great results.  The only drawback has been horrible, HORRIBLE dreams and some depression.  My doctor told me to start taking the pill in the AM and has also prescribed Lexapro for depression.  I've never been on an antidepressant and I'm a bit hesitant.  Can anyone offer info or thoughts regarding taking these two meds?

2.  I was also wondering if anyone here was familiar with the vitamin JUICE PLUS and could offer info regarding interactions with ATRIPLA and or other meds. 

I just gotta say, I LOVE this forum!  It has been a great resource.  Thanks.  :)

There are no interactions between the drugs in Atripla and Lexapro.

Re: dreams, mood etc, the culprit is Sustiva in the Atripla.  A handy page on Sustiva side effects and how to manage them

Sustiva is an effective dug, but in the end, if it's not for you, choose an alternative, there's lots to choose from that are just as good.
