PEP atripla
Dec 7, 2012

Hi doc, after 28 days of atripla PEP treatment will I experience whithrawal symptoms from the drug?

Response from Dr. Henry

Stopping Atripla does not result in withdrawal symptoms in most cases other than resolution of any side effects that were caused by Atripla (such as sleep problems from the efavirenz). One exceptionm might be in persons that had unrecognized active hepatitis B infection that was treated by the drugs in Atripla and can flare up when drugs stopped. KH
