increased amount of urine
Dec 13, 2012

Hi, day 19 now on atripla for PEP and I notice that I am passing more urine and need to go more often to urinate. Is it a side effect of the atripla?

Response from Dr. Henry

Atripla rarely would directly cause increased urination though it is possible that the central nervous side effects occasionally might trigger some bladder irritability. Most often urinary complaints would be due to unrelated issue-recommend discussing with your physician/clinician. KH

Having nausea/lethary on Complera. Can I switch back?
