Atripila & Back tightness?
Dec 5, 2007

I recently changed to Atripila from Sustiva, Emtrivia & Ziagen. I am experiencing sever tighness in my thoracic area of my back and my Chiropractor suggested I see if it wasrelated to my change in meds??

Response from Dr. Henry

The new drug in Atriple (tenofovir) would rarely cause localized muscle spasm/tightness so I generally would not link the switch to Atripla to your new symptoms but look for alternative explanations. KH

Elevated gamma gt liver enzymes
atripla and THC positive reading
