Side effects

Mar 15, 2013

Can I eat after taking didivir and efivarenz during bedtime

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Didivir is a generic form of tenofovir/FTC (we call this Truvada). If you are tolerating your combination currently, there's no problem in eating around the time that you take the medications. The only concern (*minor) is that food will tend to increase the absorption of the efavirenz- raising the possibility of increased side effects from this medication.

Hope that helps, BY

Thank you
