Taking Atripla in the morning.
I have been taking Atripla for two weeks now and have adjusted to it well, no extreme side affects, no dreams or rash, etc. The only thing I have noticed is that I haven't had a full nights sleep since I started taking it. I always take it right before bed on an empty stomach, yet I wake up around 4 am every night, and usually have to go to the bathroom badly. I can never get back to sleep, I have tried everything. I have tried reading, simply laying back down, taking a xanax, getting up for a *smoke*....nothing helps! I have been reading lately about taking it in the morning instead of at night, there are quite a few people out there who have done the same thing, for the same reason. I have noticed that most of the people who take it during the day have had no real side affects and switching to a day time dose worked great for them. I am just wondering if anyone on this site has any experience with switching from night to day and if the switch was actually beneficial. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
