naproxen and atripla
Dec 2, 2011
Hi.. I have recently strained my hand and urgent care prescribed naproxen 500 mg tablets for swelling.... I am currently taking atripla vl - undetectable, tcells - 481 and all other blood work normal - liver and kidney in normal functions. Is this safe to take with atripla? Thank you.

Hi and thanks for posting.
While there isn't a true drug-drug interaction between naproxen and tenofovir, both have the potential to cause kidney injury. So, if your kidney function is normal, there's little harm in short term use of naproxen for your injury (though it's a good idea to avoid getting dehydrated); be sure to let your health care provider know if you need to take the naproxen longer.
Be well, BY
