Atripla and cold liver oil
May 25, 2010

I have been taking atripla for the last one year. Now I have started experiencing effects of menopause, including hot flashes. My doctor has prescribed pure cold liver oil with evenning primrose. Do you think the comibination of cold liver oil and atripla is okay or there might be some drug interations? I read some where that cold liver oil might deactivate atripla and reduce its effect. Please advise me on menopause and ART

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

To my knowledge the combination that you've listed shouldn't have any significant drug-drug interactions. Let us know if your symptoms improve. (BTW, it's Cod liver oil).

Be well, BY
