Valium & Atripla
Feb 28, 2008

Hi, was just wondering if "Atripla" reduces the effect or the stregnth of "Valium"? I was taking 2mg. 3x's a day and that was like taking nothing. I was moved up to 5mg. 3x's a day and that seems to work some days and less on others.

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

If anything, Atripla increases the levels of Valium...
