People with HIV who suffer from insomnia are more likely to have a heart attack.
Experts found that Americans filled more prescriptions for antidepressants, anti-anxiety and anti-insomnia drugs.
This elevated risk only applied to a certain type of heart attack, called type 2 myocardial infarction, in a recent study.
More research on the reasons for this apparent independent link could lead to new prevention approaches.
A recent meta-analysis compared side effects linked to Tivicay versus other antiretrovirals.
This is according to a recent survey of more than 200 HIV-positive women.
Tivicay is included in Triumeq (dolutegravir/abacavir/lamivudine) and linked with insomnia in a small proportion of those on the HIV med.
Look out for these typical med side effects and tell your provider about them at once. They’re seldom serious, and most often fixable.
