Question

Do ARVs affect your emotions?

Can meds make your emotions change?

Answer

Thanks for getting in touch.

Yes, certain meds are known to cause some people problems with their emotional well-being.

This is especially true for efavirenz, or combinations like Atripla that include efavirenz.

If you’re having problems, please talk to your doctor. It is often easy to change to a different HIV combination.
