Hi doc, can atripla cause lactic acidiosis, liver or kidney problems during a 28 days PEP treatment? Or those may develop after years of using the drug?
Response from Dr. Henry
It would be extremely unusual for Atripla used for PEP (28 days) to cause serious lactic acidosis, liver or kidney problems or have lasting negative health effects assuming health (including kidney function) was OK at baseline before starting the Atripla. KH
