Apr 22, 2014

hello there, i have been on Atripla(pep) for 28 days, last pill was on the 19 April 2014, since i stopped it i feel heartburn is that normal ? or do i have to check up with a doctor ! P.S i checked for HIV few months ago and im HIV- but i'm on Atripla for pep.


Response from Dr. Henry

Atripla rarely causes heartburn and if it did generally symptoms would be expected to improve within days of stopping it. Most often the heartburn would be due to a different condition. KH

Can continual headaches/numbness/pain be cause Isentress & Truvada combo?
Chronic Diarrhea
