Atripla question
« on: February 17, 2011, 04:29:21 PM »
I've been on Atripla for about 30 months, besides feeling loopy I've tolerated it well, the last year I've noticed when I do something straining, even climbing a few flight of stairs, or sometimes (this is going to sound weird) getting out of the shower, I feel a colichy sort of throbbing pain in my kidney area that comes around my waist to my intestines and gives me slight nausea and sometimes makes me have a bowel movement.  My doctor says nothing is wrong with me, upon explaining the symptoms but sometimes I feel as though it's just not normal, because she says she checks kidney function every 3 months.  Could it be gall stones??? I have no clue and feel as if I'm going crazy, but I guess since my doctor says I'm fine I must be.  Anyone else experiencing the same thing?

If you read about the side effects, kidney fucntion can be altered, as well as liver function and digestive function. If your doctor is checking all of your levels and they are normal, you may have some other condition. Even something as Irritable Bowel Syndrome can contribute to your symptoms. Maybe a second opinion is in order?
