Cranberry Juice
Aug 1, 2007

I understand that grapefruit juice can be a problem with HIV meds, what about cranberry? Is it ok to drink with Atripla?


Response from Dr. Henry

Cranberry juice should be OK to take with Atripla. Grapefruit juice can alter liver drug clearance function and is more of a potential problem with protease inhibitors than with Atripla (efavirenz is the issue there) to my knowledge. KH
