atripla and stone issues
Dec 21, 2012

Hi doc, its day 27 now on the atripla PEP treatment, one more dose. As it relates to the UTI I was complaining about, u said Cipro would not help certain STI but I also was given a dose of Azithromoycin, sorry I forgot to mention. Today I did another Urinalysis and the doc said that no sign of infection but trace of blood in urine and ordered an ultrasound since in addition to frequent urination I now have slight back and groin pain. Do u think the atripla for PEP could have cause stone issues?

Response from Dr. Henry

Atripla extremely unlikely to be directly linked to new kidney stones in setting og NPEP as you describe. KH
