- Atripla burning sensation in throat
When I take Atripla and inadvertently chew it or hold it in my mouth too long so that the enteric coating dissolves, it causes a noticeable burning sensation in my throat when I swallow it. The sensation lasts for an hour or so before fading away.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
Joint bone and muscle pain - diagnosed with ME/CFS
From this study (5 months ago):
no painful urination, recent urine specimen revealed protein in urine (sign of infection?). I had a urinary tract infection, it was treated & resolved (to my knowledge). I don't drink alcohol, at all, or smoke. I do not take any OTC meds.
From this study (6 months ago):
I was prescribed tenofovir since 2006 in many of the combination medications for hIV treatment. doctors did not inform me of the risks. In May of 2014 I was diagnosed with CKD 3. Tis wen un checks all theses years. I was taken off Atripla "to see if my leg pain would go away" and restarted 3 months later on Complera and within days I started suffering from full body pain. The doctors insisted i stay on the medication. Then i was prescribed Stribild in 2013 and my GFR declined to 36. No doctor has yet to warm me of any side effects even when i ask they say there are no side effects. How can someone go to a doctor 6 times a year and have blood drawn 6 times or more a year and they not know you have a kidney problem.? No attorney will take my case.
