Atripla and depression
Dec 23, 2012
I am on Atripla and see anxiety and depression overcoming me. Can you please advise if paroxetine CR, which I am due to take, will negatively affect my treatment with Atripla?
Response from Dr. Fawcett
Thanks for writing. There are no substantial interactions mentioned in the literature between Atripla and paroxetine (Paxil). Be aware that Atripla contains efavirenz (Sustiva) which can affect anxiety, particularly with vivid dreams and disturbed sleep. That usually abates after a few weeks.
