Question

Why is it that Atripla needs to be taken on an empty stomach? can you please give me some idea what this means in terms of how long after/before eating atripla should be taken?

Answer

We answer this question at least once a week.

Atripla does not need be taken on an empty stomach.

For some people, the medication is better tolerated on an empty stomach (usually defined as no food for about 2 hours before dosing). If tolerability isn't an issue, eat away.

Be well, BY
