Does atripla flair up herpes or help alleviate it?

Question

I have changed to Atripla 48hrs ago from Truvada and Stoctrin and now have an episode Of genital herpes. I haven't had an episode in months, could it be that My new meds (Atripla) has triggered the herpes? If not will it help with the symptoms as well?

Answer

Hi and thanks for your post.

There is no relationship between your switch in medications and your herpes flair. A change from Truvada and Stocrin to Atripla only changes the number of pills; the medications remain exactly the same.

Be well, BY
