How to take ATRIPLA

It’s important to take ATRIPLA exactly as your healthcare provider tells you to.

  • One pill once daily

  • On an empty stomach, with water

  • Preferably at bedtime, which may make some side effects less bothersome

Don't change your dose or stop taking ATRIPLA without talking to your healthcare provider first. If you stop taking your medicine, even for a short time, it can cause an increase in HIV-1 in your body; the virus may develop resistance to ATRIPLA and become harder to treat.

Do not miss a dose of ATRIPLA. If you miss a dose:

  • Take the missed dose as soon as possible, unless it's almost time for your next dose.
  • If it is almost time for your next dose, take the next dose as planned. Do not take 2 doses at the same time. Just take the next dose of ATRIPLA at your regular time.

Do not run out of ATRIPLA. Refill your prescription or talk to your healthcare provider before your ATRIPLA is all gone.

Who should not take ATRIPLA?

Do not take ATRIPLA if you:

  • Are allergic to ATRIPLA or any of its ingredients.
  • Take certain prescription medicines for other conditions. It is important to ask your healthcare provider or pharmacist about medicines that should not be taken with ATRIPLA. Do not start a new medicine without telling your healthcare provider.
  • Are prescribed other HIV-1 medicines unless recommended by your healthcare provider.
