Tribuss as PEP and the side effects

I’m on day 7 of my 28 day PEP treatment using tribuss. I am unable to sleep as I tend to have serious nightmares. When I wake up the following day I have massive dizziness like those experienced during a bad hangover. Is there a remedy for this as I am very concerned about the three weeks ahead


Hi there,

Thanks for getting in touch.

Dizziness is a common side effect when taking ARVs that contain efavirenz. They do though usually go within a few weeks. For more info please see the following:


Because you’re only taking ARVs for 28 days, if the side effects continue, they will go when you stop taking tribuss.
