changing meds
Jul 4, 2013

I am on truvada and efavirenz for two months and my lab tests are okay,my doc wants me to change to atripla in the third it a good move

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Absolutely yes. Since the medications in Truvada and efavirenz are exactly the same as those in Atripla, switching consolidates your medications into a single, once-daily tablet.
