Atripla - Empty stomach
Aug 1, 2012

Iam told Atripla should be taken on an empty stomach. Due to may work schedule my evening meal is at 2000 hours and i take Atripla at 2200hours that is 2 hours later, is that okay?

Response from Dr. Henry

That should be OK particularly if you are not experiencing any annoying side effects (usually central nervous system side effects are main concern) when you do that. KH

Celzentry (maraviroc) and Issentress + Truvada?
