Complex: Atripla is used to treat hiv-aids & has deleterious effects on the fetus. So it should never be taken by a pregnant woman. Atripla also decreases the effectiveness of oral contraceptives, so barrier protection should be used to prevent pregnancy even if you continue the oc. Atripla should be used only under the direction of an expert in its use, and all health issues should be discussed with md.
