Atripla availability in Nicaragua
Aug 23, 2017

Back in 2013 you were asked about the availability of Atripla in Nicaragua. Do you have any new information on the subject? I plan to move to the country; I have been on Atripla since being diagnosed 3 years ago. Thank you Doctor!

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Atripla (tenofovir DF/emtricitabine/efavirenz) or it's generic cousins (usually tenofovir DF/lamivudine/efavirenz) remain the recommended initial ART in the current World Health Organization treatment guidelines for low- and middle-income countries.

There should be no problem in getting Atripla in Nicaragua.

Good luck with the move, BY
