how to take Atripla
Jul 26, 2008

I am going to start Atripla. Little scared though. just wanted to know when should I take it. the website says to take at Bedtime empty stomach. does it mean 2 yr after dinner,just before the bedtime?? sounds silly question, but appreciate your help on this.Thanks for your time.

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

I wouldn't sweat this one too much (ie., don't feel scared). Generally I'll tell my patients to take their efavirenz-based treatments just before going to bed.

Be well, BY
