Efavirenz: First, i hope you're not taking both Efavirenz and stocrin, since they're two names for the same drug. Efavirenz can cause mood changes and dizziness. If you didn't have these problems before you started the drug, you should talk to your doctor about a switch. There are plenty of good alternatives.
