Atripla and the liver

(1/1)

Hi Forum.  I just have a question and it is can Atripla hurt the liver?  I only ask caused my doctor asked for me to have a ultrasound on my liver and I was just wondering. Thanks for your reply.

J.R.E.:
Hello Red,

The simple answer is yes. It could effect the liver in time. Several of the HIV medications can have bad effects on the liver. This is also why liver function tests are done, along with the other blood tests.
