|im neg as far as i know but am with a poz guy
Jan 10, 2012
i had an incident about a week ago where my boyfriend penetrated me unprotected. He has been poz for 7 years and is not on medication with a tcell of 550. Should I take atripla? I have been taking it for two days and it makes me very sick. What is your advice?

I would see if they clinic who gave you the Atripla could change the script to just Truvada or Truvada + some other medication that would be better tolerated--post exposure or pre exposure prophylaxis is often recommended in situations like you describe. If Atripla is your only option the side effects often will diminish over over first week or so-avoid taking with high fat foods. KH
