Atripla and Gout
Sep 13, 2010

does Atripla in any way effect my gout meaning does it raise my uric acid levels when I first started taking it which has been about 4 months now I didnt really have any problems lil while after i have a gout Sence then

Response from Dr. Henry

Good question. I haven't observed or seen published any clear connection between Atripla and development of gout. Gout is fairly common in the general population so may be difficult to link a low level risk to use of a particular drug. If any reader knows of a reference demonstrating a relationship between Atripla and gout please post! KH

My doctor does not acknowledge HIV side effects
What part of the brain does hiv dementia effect?
