Sweet dreams are made of this

Are sleep problems more common in people living with HIV and if so, why? And do common medications like Sustiva make a difference. How much sleep do people living with HIV need? 

Editor Bob Leahy interviews Adam Moscovitch at the Ontario HIV Treatment Network (OHTN) Research Conference in November 2013 in Toronto about the little discussed intersections between sleep patterns and HIV. The video is below.
