Ibuprofen & Atripla
Sep 21, 2007

I'm finally getting used to this new treatment: Atripla, but my back is out {thankx to the chiropractor}. I need to take some Ibuprofen for my back, but will be taking my Atripla soon, too. Other than my poor liver... will I be ok?

Response from Dr. Henry

Generally it is OK to take ibuprofen with Atripla. Ibuprofen can cause problems in some patients (such as renal problems or stomach irritation) independent of any interaction with HIV meds that often are monitored over time. KH
