Changing meds
Jan 18, 2010

Hi Doc

would it make a difference if I were to change my meds from Truvada & Stocrine combo to Atripla. I experience almost zero side effects from the combo but the option of 1 tablet a day as supposed to two sound like an easire option. Please advice!

Response from Dr. Henry

Most patients have no difficult switching from Truvada + efavirenz (Sustiva or Stocrine) to Atripla (perhaps < 5% develop a new problem with that regimen simplification), KH
