PCOs a result of Atripla????
Nov 30, 2011
Hi Dr McGowan, After i started Atripla in 2008, I have been diagnosed with PCOs which is now making it difficult to conceive. Will this lead to Diabetes by any chance? We have no history of diabetes in both my families. Also, is the polysistic ovary syndrome(PCO)a side effect of atripla you think?? Thanks, JJ
Response from Dr. McGowan
I am sorry to hear about your diagnosis. There is a link between diabetes (or pre-diabetes called insulin resistance) and Polycystic ovaries. The diabetes (or pre-diabetes) may be the cause of the PCO. I am not aware of any link between Atripla and Polycystic Ovary Disease.
