Taking Efavirenz and Truvada in empty stomach, will it effect the stomach or give any problem to the stomach?

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

Usually this regimen has few gastrointestinal side effects. Efavirenz is recommended to be taken on an empty stomach, but this is only to decrease the risk of certain psychological side effects.
