Truvada/Sustiva - late taking doses
Dec 4, 2005

Hi Doctor,

I've been on my first regimen, Truvada /Sustiva for about 8 months with very good results. about 99% of the time I dose them between 9:30pm and 10:00pm every evening and have NEVER missed a dossed. There were two incidents however when I totally lost track of time and did not take them on time. The first was in June when I took my dose 90 minutes late and the other was just last month when I took them three hours late at 12:45am. I really freaked out about that one! I'm very concerned about resistance and need to know how forgiving these drugs are if I'm ever late again a few hours.

Thank You For All Your Help,


Response from Dr. Young

You'll be fine.. It's ok to be off by a couple of hours either way without any real concerns.

Good health, BY

I will do NO DRUGS!
***A preliminary thank you and a question about a regimen
