forgot to take Atripla for six days
Jan 12, 2012

i forgot atripla for six days. can i restart atripla again without doing resistance test? we have not such test in my country.

Response from Dr. Henry

Yes-I would restart immediately and inform your HIV provider so he/she can monitor situation. Likely will be OK but get back on meds promptly (the efavirenz in Atripla can last in blood for weeks). KH

anal itching
