Hello Wilbur1103, & welcome to the site. We are not doctors, but just people that have lots of conditons & problems that try to help others & each other out. I am going to give you a link below to read about your medicine. Just click on it & it will give you all the info you need, but yes, it should be taken on an empty stomach...
Atripla is usually taken once daily on an empty stomach (an hour before or 2 hours after a meal). At bedtime is probably the best as it may make some of the side effects more tolerable.
If you take it at any other time of the day (which is still fine) you should wait for at least 1 hour until you eat a meal. It would be fine to have a little snack before then but not a main meal.
Don't get too hung up on the timing - it is more important to take the tablet.
Hope this helps.
