Is there a difference between Atripla, Odimune, Rizene and Tribuss etc
I started with Atripla, then received Odimune and now I have been given Tribuss from my provider.
I have never had side effects. How safe is it for me to take Tribuss?
I’m afraid it might change how I look. Is it the same as the two I have already been taking?
There are no safety concerns from switching from one version to another.
Although some HIV meds have been linked to body shape changes, this is not commonly reported for any of these drugs. One exception, generally rare, is that efavirenz has been linked to weight gain in breast tissue – also called gynaecomastia (GYE-na-co-MAS-tee-ah).
