Dental Work and Atripla
Jan 25, 2010

I have always been told that I had a minor heart valve leak and whenever I go to the dentist, they prescribe antibiotics prior to doing any work such as a cleaning, etc. I am concerned about any effect on my Atripla.

Response from Dr. Henry

Short term use of antibiotics used for dental surgery are generally OK to take with Atripla. KH

Slowly CD4
OHL and on stable HAART
