    I was put on this drug as soon as it came out. I was taking 6 pills a day and was undectable. Complera has kept me undectable and my CD4 rose from 615 to 863. No side affects except the occasional night sweat. This is a wonder drug.

    This medication gave me every side effect in the book: extreme unwarranted weight gain, sleeplessness, large mood change with depression, kidney decompensation, skin problems, gallbladder pain, and pain all over my body, all symptoms similar to drug induced hepatitis.
