How long does Atripla stay in your system?
« on: October 31, 2007, 01:45:20 AM »

I am taking a physical for a gov job next wed and I do not want to test a false positive or tell them that I am HIV+. Does anyone know how long does it take to clear your system of sustiva?

Hello, welcome

a long time at detectable levels, longer than next Wednesday, so you need to make a plan...this only relates to tests for illicit drugs, and there tests which do not show false positives from Sustiva. the minimum you need to disclose is your are currently taking a medication which may case a mistaken result so please use a different test.

stopping Sustiva for a short time is a bad idea, because a few days off the drug can lead quickly to resistance, which, if it happens, means you can't use the drug anymore.

If they screen you for drugs once then they could do it again. I agree with newt.

Started Atripla 8/18/06 and if I eat the right food when I take my meds, I get to go on a-trip-la.

I agree with the others.  If you're planning a long-term future with Sustiva, you shouldn't try to "clear it out of your system" for a drug test.   If you do this, Sustiva might never be an option for you again.
