Nasea and Atripla
May 28, 2008

I have been taking Atripla for about two months. Due to regular testing I know I have been HIV+ less than two years. My question is about nausea. I have four or five good days, then I have two days of horrid nausea. Will this stop or is it something I need to be concerned with? I will see my doctor in aout a week. Is there anything I need to talk to her about concerning this nausea?


Response from Dr. Henry

There are many causes for nausea of which medications (such as Atripla) can be one. A good clinical evaluation is advised. If the Atripla is implicated then there are a number of variably effective anti-nausea meds available as well as switch options (off the Atripla) to discuss with your HIV specialist. KH
