E.D. From Atripla? 2
Apr 22, 2008
Forgot to mention that I do use Viagra 100 MG and still get the limp result or erect for just a very short time period. Would another brand work better for me?

There is no clear data to suggest that Atripla or any of its components are associated with erectile dysfunction. This being said, efavirenz is an inducer of hepatic metabolism so it may reduce the efficacy of ED drugs such as Viagra. In addition, it may be that HIV infection or related conditions is associated with reduced testosterone levels, which could lead to ED. It may be worth checking if this is the case, by ordering a measure of free testosterone in the blood.
