Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
It's not normal to develop a rash (though not rare) after staring on new medications. Among the medicines contained with Tribuss (we call this combination pill Atripla), it's not uncommon for the efavirenz component to cause rash.
I'd speak to your healthcare provider promptly about your symptoms.
Hope that helps, BY
