Atripla and alcohol
Feb 4, 2012
I am wondering if I need to worry about drinking while taking Atripla? I usually have a glass or two a night, no more than than, or red wine. Is there any concern that I need to know about? My liver/kidney functions are terrific. Been taking it 2 years.

Hello and thanks for posting.
In moderation (and assuming that you don't have liver or alcohol dependency issues), having a drink or two won't cause any problems with your HIV medications. My only cautionary note is being mindful of the potential risk that late night drinks might have with missing your evening dose of medications. Short of that, no worries.
Be well, BY
