Response from Dr. Henry

Viraday (Atripla in US) does not often cause swelling or numbness in feet unless there is underlying kidney or heart disease. You need to have a clinical evaluation to assess nutrition, renal, and heart status. Would for the time being continue the Viraday unless a kidney problem is identified. KH

Rash from Atripla after 1 year?
