Atripla Hives
« on: February 05, 2014, 03:50:38 PM »

I have been having recurrent hives for almost 2 years. For the last year I have been visiting doctors, and had several allergy test including: allergens in the area where I live (pollen, etc..) and a food panel allergy test. Everything looks good in both tests. 

I have been writing a journal with the things I eat and do to see what triggers the flares.  Hives started like 2 months after I began Atripla.  I was using Sustiva before with No problem, so I am blaming Truvada. 

The hives are not cause only by taking the medicine, but when I eat or use something While taking the medicine. Things like: Eating to much nuts, multivitamins, chicken that has antibiotics, using chemicals with Clorox bleach and eating some sea food. 

it looks like my body has become now very sensitive to them.  Things that I was not allergic before Truvada.

Any idea if Truvada can cause something like that?

Why are my Allergy test showing good?
