side effects of atripla

Jul 31, 2011

i started taking atripla like 6 months ago and my blood creatinine suddenly increased. is this a side effect of the drug?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Could be. But you don't indicate what the baseline level was and what it increased to, so hard to know what the significance of the increase is. In addition, are there any other ongoing medical conditions or other medications or over the counter products being taken? All of these things could also be contributing to an increase in creatinine.

white blood cell count
Positive screening test
