Side effect?
May 27, 2009

Dr KH Thanks for being so helpful. I am going into my 3rd month of treatment. I am on truvada and Efivarenz. I get this choking feeling in my throat(food pipe).it feels as if food is stuck this perhaps one of the side effects?

Response from Dr. Henry

That would be unusual to be caused by Atripla 3 months begin after starting. I recommend a full history and physical examination and possibly an Ear, nose and throat specialist exam and/or barium swallow or upper endoscopy depending on the findings of clinical assessment. KH
