|skin becoming darker
Jul 29, 2012
i have just been diagnosed and started taking tribuss for a month now. my complexion is changing (becoming darker) is this one of the side-effects? is it normal?
| Response from Mr. Vergel
Tribuss is a generic form of Atripla (efavirenz+emtricitabine+tenofovir)
Emtricitabine has been reported to cause skin hyperpigmentation, although this side effect is rare and asymptomatic (it does not cause medical issues)
