Hello and thanks for posting.
It's good that you had a resistance test done before you started medications. Unfortunately, your apparently show transmitted multidrug resistance (to efavirenz, lamivudine and zidovudine/AZT). As such, you really should not use Atripla, ever, as a first regimen, since your resistance pattern predicts that 2 of the three medications in Atripla are compromised.
Be well, BY
