Q and A


Why can’t I sleep properly?

Since I started taking Odiume I’ve been waking up a lot, what should I do?


Thanks for getting in touch.

How long have you been taking ARVs for? If it’s just a week or so, having issues with sleep is common, this is due to the efavirenz that are in your combination. The sleep issues should ideally go within a few weeks.

If you’ve been taking your meds for longer than a few weeks and you’re¬†taking your meds as prescribed, please see here: https://i-base.info/guides/1561¬† then it might be a good idea to change to something else.

If you live in South Africa, there other options. One of which is TLD.
