Question

How long does it take for the stomach to empy? How long after I eat I have to wait to take Atripla?

Answer

Thanks for your question.

We usually recommend waiting 2 hours to take Atripla on an empty stomach. Taking Atripla with food can increase it's blood level and may cause more dizziness and neurologic symptoms (the meds would still work but the side effects might be more).
