In brief: Pros and cons

Atripla is a bit stronger but has more side effects.
We use Complera (emtricitabine and rilpivirine and tenofovir) in people whose viral loads are below 100, 000 and whose CD4 counts are above 200. Take Complera (emtricitabine and rilpivirine and tenofovir) with a meal, and don't take it with medications that reduce stomach acid. If you're viral load is higher than that, you could take atripla, though i often prefer stribild, another single-tablet regimen that's better tolerated.
