Atripla side effect?
Oct 13, 2008

Hello, I have been on Atripla for over a year now and have had no major side effects. I have noticed blood in my stools the last 2 bowel movements that I have had. I am very concerned. What should I do?

Response from Dr. Henry

Atripla doesn't generally cause GI bleedings whereas hemorrhoids, polyps, cancer, and other conditions can occur in HIV+ persons as well as HIV- persons so an evaluation by your HIV specialist and /or a gastroenterologist is recommended. KH

Why does Atripla cause dizziness?
