stribild and swollen ankles
Dec 7, 2012

I have been on stribild for 2 months. About 2 weeks ago, I noticed my ankles are swelling.. one more than the other.. I was on atripla and am thinking of going back to it.. What do you think? Im also on tenormin 25mg and caduet 10/40. I know stribild can increase the lipitor

Response from Dr. Henry

Stribild does not often cause increased swelling in ankles. Concern about impaired blood or lypmph flow through the pelvic/abdomen from lower extremities should prompt an evaluation for renal, cardiac, liver, dietary, or mechanical flow issues so a general clinical/lab evaluation is warranted. Stribild could have an effect on renal function is small % of cases or a drug interaction problem as you mention. KH

PEP atripla
