atripla with or without food?
Dec 22, 2011

hi doc please reply to this question.

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

While its recommended to take Atripla with food, it's not mandatory. Food simply increases efavirenz drug levels modestly and therefore, the possibility of efavirenz-related side effects.

If you tolerate Atripla without any of those unwanted side effects, then enjoy that midnight snack.

Be well, BY
