E.D. From Atripla?

Apr 21, 2008

Hi, was wanting to know if Atripla can cause "Erectile Dysfunction"? I have been HIV+ less than a year and on Atrilpa for about 7 months now. In the last two months I have been having problems getting and staying erect! I more or less now just have the precum (lack of a better word) and no erection. I am not on any antidepressants and don't know what or how this change has happened in my penis becoming non-erect. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated! Oh by the way CD4 is 675 and I am undetectable status per this month's labs.

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

I'm not aware of ED being a side effect of the medications in Atripla. Either way, I'd discuss your symptoms with your doctor.

Best of luck,
