side effects
Jan 31, 2010

Been taking atripla for six months now but I have joint pains in knees and hip joints can this be a side effect

Response from Dr. Henry

Joint pain in knees and joints has not been much of a problem for patients taking Atripla (occurs occasionally). Pain in the knees and hips is seen fairly often in general population and can have a variety of causes so a good joint work-up is recommended to better understand what may be contributing to your discomfort (such as vitamin D deficiency, osteoarthritis, aseptic necrosis of the hip, degenerative joint disease and many other conditions).

Low Grade Dyspasia
Laser Treatments Safe?
