I have been taking Atripla to manage my hiv infection for 2 years now and have responded well with the exception of having elevated cholesterol levels. My doctor as a result precribed LIPITOR which I tolerate less well. I have three recommendations for a natural supplement called RED RICE YEAST POWDER for cholesterol reduction. Has anyone heard of any contraindications between this supplement and Atripla?
I couldn't find any documented evidence about effects or side effects on using Atripla with red rice yeast. It's difficult to guess it's effects. Discuss it with your doctor. Depending on how high your cholesterol is ... your doctor needs to decide if it is necessary to use something to lower it. Priority is to use Atripla effectively.
