Just got off of two meds then added one. Then take 2 in am two in pm. I wish I could get off my anti depressants. Plus anxiety pill. To be blunt it’s virtually impossible to get a erection. I did get some viagra haven’t tried it yet. Any suggestions. I need the pills I’d go crazy if not for them. Sorry to bore you with my issues. Jeff

I've not taken Sustiva, yeah, on Triumeq one pill a day, I do have very vivid dreams, nothing scary. More like a matter of fact dreams. I also tend to have dreams of all of my deceased family members & deceased family members from my deceased husband Ricks side . All mostly good dreams.
