Atripla Dosing Time?
Aug 27, 2010

Hi Doctor, I just started Atripla, and am doing ok mostly, but have a bit of trouble sleeping when I take it around 11pm. Could I take it earlier, say around 7 or 8pm? Or maybe even earlier? Thanks for your input!

Response from Dr. Henry

That should be OK for some patients though timing relative to eating (esp fatty meals) needs to be factored in as well (taking with fatty food may increase efavirenz levels with higher risk for side effects). KH
