drug interaction atripla chantix

I would like to know symptoms and side effects of taking Chantix with the HIV medicine Atripla; both have a lot of psychological side effect warnings and I want to know if it's worth the risk to take both of these together or not... ## I do not know the effects of taking these drugs together. However, I can tell you 1st hand that Chantix -in myself and 2 others I know personally- was a Rx for personal and friendship relationship disasters. IMO they should change the name to "Antix" b/c of the way it will turn a loving individual into a unreasonable hateful being. We stopped ch-Antix and used the e-cig system to stop smoking and still keep friends... ## I did not find any problems, or interactions listed, but there is no way to say how any given medication may affect any pers...

I have taken for one week

I was just diagnosed as hiv positive and went to an HIV specialist who has prescribed Atripla. My viral load was high and cd4 count at something like 220k. I have had some side affects, but not too intolerable. I am dizzy in the am. Can I expect more side effects or would I have had them by now. ## 2 weeks on Atripla now, and I have not experienced the weird dreams that I was warned about. I do get a bit dizzy but since I take the pill at night, that does not matter - in fact it's a relaxing high. In a couple of days I will get my next blood test, and I'm hoping that the T's and viral load will be going in the right direction! I'm almost apprehensive, because I have not experienced any of the dire side effects that I have read about. ## Medications can affect everyone di...

Can Atripla Be Take With Osteo Bi

Can Atripla be take with Osteo BI-Flex is it safe ## Hi Linda, I don't see any information stating that Atripla has drug interactions with Osteo Bi-Flex. With that said, you SHOULD be okay to take them both. As with any medications, you should always pay attention to how your body is affected and promptly report any issues to your doctor. I hope this helps and good luck!
