atripla and depression
Dec 7, 2012

Hi, do you think taking Paroxetine CR with atripla will be a problem? I think I am being depressed because of the atripla and my doc asked me to try Paroxetine.

Response from Dr. Henry

If the efavirenz in Atripla is contributing to the depression then switching to alternative regimen (if that is an option for you) is often a preferred strategy versus adding another medication. Paraxetine can be taken with Atripla in most patients. KH

Taking meds
28 or 30 days PEP
