Leg Pain
Jan 21, 2009

I hve recently started Atripla and I have been having really bad pai in my legs exspecially before my cycle(mionthly) please help me to understand what is happening also in my knee, following Migrains.

Response from Dr. Henry

Leg pain not primarily in toes/feet (usually in a bilateral manner) is unlikely due directly to one of the components in Atripla. A careful history and examination is needed to sort out other possible contributing factors such as nerve compression at some location due to edema or mechanical irritation which are fairly common causes of leg pain in the general population.
