Probiotics and Atripla
Aug 19, 2011

I recently discovered I have a spastic colon. I was perscribed Bentyl. A friend suggested supplementing this with probiotics. I take Atripla. Do you know of any negative side effects with HIV meds? Thank you, Michael

Response from Dr. Henry

Usually OK to take probiotics (though recommend at different dosing times) when on Atripla-would make sure your HIV specialist is informed so he/she can follow appropriately. KH

Keep getting sick...
