Common Questions and Answers about Atripla med

atripla

I recently signed for a med delivery for my boyfriend of almost 2 years. We live together and he has two children. I opened the package to see what it was because he never takes medicine and I thought something was wrong. After some research I found out that Atripla is for treating HIV. He has been taking it for 5 months now (it said the original date on the rx). Needless to say I freaked out and about had a panic attack. I have not asked him about it yet, but I am going to.

I take Atripla every night at 10 PM - I put it in my pillbox in the morning and take it at night. Today, I spaced out and took it around 10:30 am, after taking it at 10 PM last night. I want to get back to the night time regiment, by taking it 2-3 hours earlier or later every day until I am back to 10:00 pm. Is it better to take it every 21-22 hours every day until I do, or is it better to take it every 26-26 hours every day until back to 10 PM.
That depends on your resistant testing? I take one pill for HIV and I take 9 others with a liquid med for the problems HIV has caused. It just depends on what your ID doctor prescribes. It will cost you over a grand a month for meds as long as you don't have anything else wrong. My prescriptions for a year, not counting lab tests, doctor visits etc. is 66,000 per year.
Would they start him on Med atripla without being 1000000 % sure.. not sure what test they dud on him.
Missing random doses of any HIV med is not recommended. You may become resistant to Atripla and the three drugs it is made up of if you continue missing doses. I would not worry too much about the two doses in seven weeks, but try not to let it keep happening! Remember, Atripla is one of the drugs with an easier dosing schedule. If you do become resistant, you may have to switch to something much harder to remember.
By the way,on last test for VL,after being off Atripla for 2 1/2 mths,he got a call from his doc.She was in a panic because he had no med in his system but his VL went from 500 to 285 and she didn't know why...she had never called him before or informed him of any test results in spite of his request that she do so.I put him on a high-fiber diet,that is all...But then,she hadn't met me....
She gave me an Elisa HIV fulll STD panel Hep ABC, Epstein Barr test and a prescription for Atripla didnt fill til after the test. All tests came up negative, Took Atripla for 5 days and when neg test I stopped. I took a DNA PCR HIV test at time, negative but after 5 days of Atripla. My Epstein Barr was active high so possible. But not new or acute infection. Symptoms now have continued for a month, very severe, very painful. Going to take my 2 month Elisa and DNA test next week 7/17.
I am looking to speak with anyone taking the med combo of Norvir, Truvada, and Reyetaz. Wondering if anyone has noted side affects of these drugs....
my guess would be that it is the new med combination.. when I started my meds the diarrhea was intense- OH MY GOD....after a while my stomach got used to it for the most part- my dr told me to take 1 immodium every day and that helped, I would tell him to ask his Dr if the immodium is ok to take first which I'm sure it will be....
I insisted he be retested after I put him on a high-fiber diet (only) and took him off Atripla.After not taking Atripla for approx. 3mths his VL went down by 300,which has confused his "doctor".MY QUESTION: What are the similarities/differences between Anti-HIV1,0.2+p24-Ag Abbott,4.Genaratio(pos. result) and HIV-p24-Antigen Murex HIV Antigenmab(neg. result)?I could only find from my own research that p24Ag is tested in both,that the tests are from 2 diff.
I am a 48 year old hiv positive male living in the Uk.I have been diagnosed with hiv for the past 9 years & have been on combination therapy med Atripla for the past 3 years with a cd4 of 300 & a undetactable viral load. I was diagnosed with hep c in May 2008 with lft of approx 2,500.I started hep c treatment on January 7th 2009 & i am in my 5th week taking a weekly injection of Viraferon alfa-2b & Rebetol 3 x 200mg twice daily.
I started the HIV med Atripla in late February. My viral load went from 70,000 to 50 and cd4 from 6 to 50 in about a month. However at the beggining of March I went back into the hospital due to severly low potassium levels. ( I had also gone from about 150 lbs down to almost 110 over a period os about 2-3 months). Almost being unable to move my limbs.
I'm allergic to meds such as acyclovir which is for shingles, bactrim, sustiva, atripla. I don't take any pain meds at all for anything. My liver was failing because of medications for HIV and anti depressants at the time of the biopsy. Is it possible that because of the liver failure the drugs weren't metabolized at all?

Even go on CDC site and you will find that oral is considered low risk means chances are there. If he was not on med means virus load must be high so why to take chances. Its your life so better ask hiv specialist or other expert doctors . Only expert doctors will give you answers.
I was back in the hospital last year for histo and spent a couple of weeks but all in all I'm doing well. I take Atripla for HIV and Bactrum to prevent PCP and Noxfil for the histo. I also take Ritalin for fatigue.
instead the company is taking a page from its HIV playbook, believing that the long-term future of Hep C treatment will be in developing combination of oral drugs --each acting against the Hep C virus in different ways -- that can eliminate the need for injectable interferon and perhaps even ribavirin, both of which can cause nasty side effects.
