Can Atripla (the Sustiva/Truvada combo) affect the thyroid gland? Can Atripla cause hypothyroidism?
Response from Dr. Henry
I am not aware nor have I had any experience with the components of Atripla directly causing hypothyroidism (which occurs in the general population and may be increased in HIV+ persons in general). KH
