timing of drugs
Jul 28, 2004

hi I've just started treatment but already feel i'm slipping a bit with the exact time i take my medication (efavirenz, 3TC, tenofovir once a day). I know i am lucky to be on once a day! I take them at midnight but do i have much of slack either side of midnight? (i.e. is an hour later or earlier acceptable?) many thanks Paul

Response from Dr. Young

Paul- thanks for your question. You've got a several hour window with which to take your meds. Certainly an hour either way is fine.
