Response from Dr. Henry
Aluvia (I beleive that is lopinavir/ritonavir) rarely would cause joint pain so that needs to be assessed by his doctor. Whether he could be switch to Atripla depends on past treatment history (whether he as drug resistance) and what is size is (the doses of meds in Atripla are fixed and are usually OK for an adult of normal size with good kidney function).
