Is Atripla Prescribed Off-Label?
On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Atripla for treating something other than HIV infection and AIDS. This is called an "off-label" use. At this time, Atripla is used off-label to prevent HIV infection in people exposed to the virus (such as a healthcare worker who comes in contact with a contaminated needle stick). This is called postexposure prophylaxis (PEP).
