How do i get rid of a bland taste after taking atripla
Dec 3, 2008

I have been taking Atripla for only 6 days now but have noticed a couple of hours after I wake I have a bland taste in my mouth. It taste as if the medicine has coated my mouth. I know that cant be the case because I swallow immediately. I heard that a baking "soda goggle" might help but didnt see a response for it so I wanted to propperly ask. If not is there any thing else that can help me with this annoying taste? Thanks for your help!

Response from Dr. Henry

I have prescribed alot of Sustiva or Atripla and have not heard that observation from many patients -if any reader has a comment or a reference please post. KH
