Change medication from Truvada and Stocrin to Atripla
« on: June 12, 2013, 05:22:09 PM »
Hallo
I have been on Truvada and Stocrin for many years now maybe 7yrs and have been doing not too bad. I have had liver and kidney problems. Today i went to see my doctor for the usual routine and she suggested that i change medication to 1 pill per day which is Atripla. I have started the drug yet, i wanted to find out if this is a good idea. After Reading the side effects and other people`s comments who have been or are on Atripla, it sounds negative to me.
Can somone please advice me before.
Thanks

Lido, Truvada and Stocrin IS Atripla. The only difference is it's one pill instead of two.

The problems people have with Atripla are usually caused by Sustiva, aka Stocrin, aka efavirenz.

You are only changing the form/shape of your combo, not the actual drugs in the combo.
