Response from Dr. Henry
Marked diarrhea is an uncommon side effect from Viraday (Atripla in US) so should prompt an evaluation for another cause (ie AIDS related infection, parasites, C difficile infection, lactose or gluten intolerance and many others). A small number of patients may develop diarrhea from the tenofovir which may decrease with time (maintaining good hydration, nutrition and anti-diarrheal drugs may help if no other serious cause found).
