Atripla Sildenafil interaction

May 22, 2010

hi! I am HIV+ since 2005 and 5 months ago started Atripla. My viral load isn't yet undetectable (279 copies/ml) but my doctor believe that it will get soon undedectable . Do you agree? Sometimes (1-2 times/per week) I use Sildenafil as errection enhancer. Could this to problems or failure of my HIV therapy? Thnx for your time

Response from Mr. Vergel

Efavirenz in Atripla may speed up the clearance of Viagra from the blood, so a higher dose of Viagra may be required for the same effect.

What are MAC symptoms?
Have been taking efavirenz for 18 months and still get sick
