going from truvada/sustiva to atripla
May 10, 2011

Hello, considering changing from truvada/sustiva to atripla. although the medicatons are identical, could there be any problems/suggestions with doing this?

Response from Dr. Henry

In my experience up to 95% have no problems or actually prefer the fixed dose form of the drugs (Atripla). I have seen or heard of a small % of patients who have problems with the fixed dose single pill compared to the separate medications. KH

Will I develop resistance?
Peripheral Neuropathy despite strong numbers?
