Does anyone know whether atripla can make anemia worse?
« on: June 04, 2013, 04:01:23 PM »
Before i started taking atripla in September last year, i had mild anemia but now it is getting worse. My id doctor is trying to figure out what is causing it and referred me to a g.i specialist for tests. The g.i wants to do a colonoscopy to rule out bleeding but i was just wondering whether anyone has had anemia after starting atripla.

Other than that, taking the pill has gone way better than i expected. I have not missed a dose since i started and have experienced a lot of positives. So i would like to encourage those who are on the sidelines afraid of starting medication because of whatever reason that it is not all that bad. If i could do it with the kind fear that i had anyone can.

Very, very rarely efavirenz, one of the drugs in Atripla, may be related to anaemia:
