double dose of Atripla

May 2, 2009

I just took a double dose of Atripla within about 15 minutes of each dose. (I had taken the first dose just after waking up and didn't remember taking it.) Is there a risk of overdose?

Response from Dr. Young


In the short run a double dose of Atripla shouldn't be the cause of any significant long-term problems. You might experience a little more of the efavirenz psychological side effects, but otherwise, you should be ok.
