Atripla and food
Oct 19, 2011

Can I take atripla with food if I do not have any side affects.

Response from Dr. Henry

Major concern with Atipla is that taking with fatty foods can get high levels of efavirenz with more side effects--if you have noticed that is not a concern/problem for you then less of a concern to take Atripla with food--would inform your HIV provider so he/she can monitor. KH

Rash again even after switching meds
loss of eye brows & lashes
