General Information On Atripla
Atripla is an oral anti-viral medication that is used for treating HIV. It is a fixed-dose combination drug and consists of three drugs – Tenofovir, Emtricitabine and Efavirenz. Atripla was approved for the treatment of HIV in July, 2006. It may be used alone or in combination with other drugs to treat HIV. The drug prevents the reproduction and growth of the HIV virus (human immunodeficiency virus) inside the patient’s body. It does this by restricting the formation of the genetic material of the virus. Do note that Atripla does not cure AIDS.
Side Effects for Atripla
A large number of patients using Atripla (Tenofovir, Emtricitabine and Efavirenz) may not experience any noticeable side effects. However, many patients may encounter adverse reactions like nausea, diarrhea, flatulence, fatigue and drowsiness, liver problems, lack of concentration, insomnia, disturbed sleep and discoloration of the skin. The list of side effects is not complete, and there may be some other adverse effects. In case you suspect that any adverse reaction is due to the drug, make sure that you discuss it with your doctor.
In rare cases, Atripla may lead to the darkening of soles and palms. In a few instances, the use of drug may lead to kidney problems and thinning of the bones. The drug has been reported to cause redistribution of fat in the body in a few patients. In very few cases, lactic acidosis, a very serious side effect, has been reported. Patients are advised to read the patient information insert when they buy Atripla.
It is important to share your complete medical history with your doctor before starting the treatment. Patients with past or existing liver problems, hepatitis infections, kidney disorders, psychiatric disease, and low bone mineral density must report it to their doctor. In case any allergic reaction is experienced while using Atripla, the medication must be stopped immediately and the patient must seek emergency medical assistance. The drug is completely contraindicated during pregnancy and must never be prescribed to pregnant women.
Each tablet of Atripla consists of: Efavirenz 600mg, Tenofovir 300mg and Emtricitabine 200mg. The dosage of Atripla is once a day. It is recommended that you take the drug on an empty stomach. The tolerance of drug has been reported to be better if the tablet is taken at bedtime. Make sure that you never miss your dose or change the timing of dosage.
Atripla has been found to interact with several other drugs. The interaction may lead to modification in the effect of the other drug or Atripla. Sometimes, one of the drugs may become totally useless if taken together. Therefore, it is crucial that your doctor is aware of all the medications that you are currently using. Some of the drugs that have been found to interact with Atripla are acyclovir, adefovir, methadone, sertraline, warfarin, drugs for cholesterol management like pravastatin and atorvastatin, certain antibiotics like clarithromycin, antifungal drugs like ketoconazole, drugs for hypertension like nifedipine, and other drugs for HIV like atazanavir, indinavir and didanosine.
This list is not complete, and it is very important that you read the product insert which comes when you buy Atripla and clarify any concerns you may have about drug interactions. It is also important to inform your physician of all medications that you are taking.
As an antiviral drug; Atripla combines 3 reverse transcriptase inhibitors. While Atripla does not necessarily cure AIDS or HIV; it works by inhibiting the growth of the HIV virus that causes AIDS.
Benefits of Atripla
While most HIV medications are required to be taken several times a day; Efavirenz can be taken just once daily, thereby eliminating or decreasing the occurrence of mixed dosage errors or even missed doses.
