Hi, I am taking Atripla in Spain with 600 mg Efsvirenz, 200 mg emtricitabina and 245mg tenofovir disoproxil. But looking at this web the mg of 2 components of Atripla are diferent. Why? Which is better?

Hello and thanks for posting.
Both are real Atripla. The difference is in how regulatory agencies tally up the medications. Here in the US, Atripla is considered to have 300 mg of tenofovir disoproxil, whereas in Europe, it's 245 mg.
