Question

What is Atroiza used for?

Answer

Atroiza is a combination pill than contains three HIV drugs. It is a generic version of Atripla.

It is mainly used to treat HIV.

However, i some countries the same drugs (efavirenz/tenofovirDF/emtricitabine) are used as PEP to prevent HIV infection.

This is not recommended in the UK or in other guidelines. which recommend different HIV drugs for PEP. This is because of concerns about efavirenz side effects in HIV negative people.

See: PEP, PEPSE and PrEP.

    Hi Welcom – the doctor has prescribed Atroiza as PEP. See this link for more information:

    Atroiza is not recommended as PEP in the UK but it is used in some other countries.
