atripla plus dutasteride
Aug 6, 2013

I am currently taking Atripla. I am considering starting to take Dutasteride to combat hair loss.Could you advise if it is safe to take these drugs together.Could these drugs affect each other.

Response from Dr. Henry

Generally should be OK to use those drugs together though there is a theoretical possibility that the levels (effectiveness) of the dutasteride will be decreased-I would make sure both your HIV specialist and pharmacist are aware so they can monitor of any unexpected problems. KH
