Atripla Side Effects
Apr 19, 2009

I have been taking Atripla for a few months now and notice that my blood pressure levels have become irregular. I anted to know if this was a common thing when using this medication for some time?

Response from Dr. Henry

High blood pressure has not been seen very often with Atripa (< 1-2%) and since high blood pressure is fairly common in the general population (increasing with age) it can be tough to nail down a link to a certain med (particularly if on other meds as well). KH
