| Response from Dr. Henry
Many patients have lots of side effects when first starting HIV meds-even with Atripla. The symptoms usually diminish over the first 1-4 weeks. what you describe seems worse than usual from the gut standpoint. He should discuss with his HIV specialist to see if they can give him something for the symptoms or whether he needs an evaluation. KH
