Epidoarl Injections
Feb 25, 2007

Have a bad disk ( L5 )will shots effect my meds. or HIv.? I am on Atripla now for one year!!!!

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

The commonly used injections for back disease shouldn't interact with the components of Atripla (tenofovir, FTC, efavirenz), but I'd be sure to let both your HIV and back doctors know about all the medications (and supplements) that you take before getting any treatments.
