Response from Dr. Henry
Modest variations in weight are common in the general population and in HIV+ persons. Mild weight loss merits attention and monitoring but is not usually a major clinical concern and in fact may be good for ones health if somewhat overweight. A good medical evaluation for hormone, blood sugar status is recommended in situations like this. Significant Weight loss is not a common side effect from Atripla. KH
