Itching of the body.
Dec 27, 2009

I have been taking Atripla for about 3 years. Within the three years I have experience itching on the front of my legs. It has come and gone but recently I have been experiencing itching on my bottom. Is this normal and would I need to stop taking Atripla?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

If you have been tolerating your Atripla for three years, I'd think it would be quite unusual for you to develop itching as a new symptom at this point.

Nevertheless, I would recommend speaking to your health care provider about your symptoms and concerns.

Be well, BY
