Is it ok to take my diabetes and HIV meds together?

Is it ok to take my diabetes and HIV meds together? I’m on Atripla and Januvia.

Answer

The HIV meds you take and your Januvia may interact with each other. Efavirenz is one of the drugs in Atripla. It may lower the levels of Januvia. You should talk to your clinic about this. They may want to increase the amount of Januvia you are taking or talk about alternative HIV meds.

I used an online drug interaction tool to check this.
