late dose/viral blip
Jan 11, 2009
I take Sustiva/Kivexa. I take them at 11.00pm. The day/night before my last bloods were taken I realised that I was out out of Sustiva. So only took Kivexa. I had bloods taken at 11.00am the following day. Then took the Sustiva. Those bloods showed a VL of 350, always been >40 previously. Is it possible/likely that the 13 hour delay in taking the Sustiva caused this blip. If so will there be any resistence developed. Thanks

Unlikely that blip is the result of a 13 hour gap in sustiva dosing. Sustiva lasts a long time in your body. Unlikely that resistance would have developed.
