Is it save to switch to Atripla?
Jul 23, 2006
This is my fifth year on HAART. I started with the combo of Sustiva, Lamivudine and 3TC. I changed to another combo of Lamivudine+3TC+Nevirapine about two years ago. Now with the new Atripla in the market, is it save to switch to it?
Response from Dr. Wohl
It is unclear what you are currently taking as lamivudine and 3TC are the same drugs. If you are still on AZT + 3TC (i.e. Combivir) plus nevirapine, a switch to Atripla for convenience should be no problem provided your viral load is undetectable now.
