atripla is simply three pills in one (sustiva, viread and emtriva). so, if you are having problems with sustiva, it probably isn't going to help.

Hi Tigger,

I just looked at my notes from my January appointment where the Wizard and I talked first-line combos. He did indeed say that Atripla is not yet approved for use in the UK, but he expects it to be approved by the end of the year.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Although atripla is likely to be approved in the UK by the end of the year, the price will determine whether it is prescribed or not. As truvada is viread + emtriva, it will basically replace a 2 pill once daily regimen with a 1 pill once daily regimen. The NHS is unlikely to fork out extra for a pretty marginal advantage like that, if atripla costs more.
