Additional Drugs That React With Atripla

Certain Seizure Medications
Taking Atripla with certain seizure medications can decrease the level of both Atripla and the seizure medication in your blood, possibly making them less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to adjust your dose of these medications as a result.
 
Cidofovir
Cidofovir may interfere with the kidneys' ability to remove Atripla from the blood. This could lead to increased blood levels of Atripla and increased risk of side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
 
Didanosine
Atripla can increase the level of didanosine in your blood. Your healthcare provider may need to lower your didanosine dosage to prevent this interaction from occurring.
 
Diltiazem
Atripla can decrease the level of diltiazem in your blood, perhaps making it less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to increase your diltiazem dosage as a result.
 
Ergot Medications
Atripla and ergot medications should not be taken together, due to the risk of life-threatening reactions.
 
Ganciclovir
Ganciclovir may interfere with the kidneys' ability to remove Atripla from the blood. This could lead to increased blood levels of Atripla and increased risk of side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
 
Hormonal Contraceptives
Atripla may increase the level of certain hormonal contraceptives in your blood. Since it is not known exactly how this will affect the effectiveness of the hormonal contraceptive, it is recommended that a non-hormonal method of birth control (such as condoms) be used.
