Atripla side effects aren't that serious. Especially when you consider what Atripla is used for. Atripla isn't an over the counter medication for a common cold or sinus issues. Atripla is used to treat HIV and AIDS. This prescription medication has three different drugs, that when combined prevent the HIV virus from multiplication. Atripla also keeps the HIV virus from spreading to uninfected cells. In essence, it's a cage for the virus. It won't kill the virus, but Atripla will contain it. So, the following side effects, which effect a rather nominal amount of people, are worth dealing with.
- Nausea and dizziness. Most drugs have this side effect. Again, it's a small price to pay to contain the HIV virus. Atripla only effected eight percent of all tested subjects with nausea and dizziness.
- Diarrhea and fatigue. During the clinical trials for Atripla, some people felt the effects of diarrhea and fatigue. Only about seven percent of all users got these symptoms. Though annoying, these symptoms still don't seem to be all that bad.
- Headaches. Five percent of the people that used Atripla got headaches. Now, if you're one of the unlucky test subjects that experienced ALL of the side effects then you'd have something to grip about. But, for the majority of the users, the side effects didn't seem to effect them.
- Other side effects. One to four percent of all the users experienced a host of really annoying side effects. The side effects included, runny nose and soar throat, vomiting, excessive drowsiness, sinus infection, and some experienced abnormal dreams. But, it was only up to four percent. The chances that you'll experience these weird effects are slim to nill.
