I am on tribuss treatment and today is day 32. After taking the pill it feels like a burning sensation in my stomach and wanted to find out if this normal?

Response from Dr. Henry

Burning in the stomach can occur from Tribuss (Atripla in US) but is not common and often may be due to another problem (such as high acid levels, H pylori infection, or other often non-HIV related condition). Bloating, loose stools, mild nausea are the more common stomach problems from Tribuss and tend to decrease over first months on treatment such that after several months perhaps only 5-10% of patients have persistent annoying gut problems.
