Drug Timing
Dec 15, 2004

I know that faithfully taking drugs is important to prevent resistance. I usually take my drugs (Combivir/Sustiva) about 9-9:30 AM and about 11:30 or so at night. I understant that the Combivir should be taken every 12 hours, but is my schedule good enough? I rarely miss, but have found it is easiest to take just before bed wheatever time that may be.

Thanks for your help.....

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your question.

Your timing should be fine. Make sure that you continue to get ongoing clinic and laboratory monitoring to make sure that your viral and CD4 cell responses are good ones.

Happy holidays, thanks for reading. BY
