Atripla & Thyroid
May 17, 2007

Can Atripla (the Sustiva/Truvada combo) affect the thyroid gland? Can Atripla cause hypothyroidism?

Response from Dr. Henry

I am not aware of data (nor have I seen it in my own patients) that links any of the components of Atripla to hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is fairly common in the general population and has been reported to perhaps be modestly increased in HIV+ persons so a rare link to a specific drug can be hard to prove. KH
