Dosing time - transatlantic travel

Mar 20, 2006

Apologies, in advance, since you've probably answered this question before, but I couldn't find it. I take Sustiva and Truvada before bedtime (approximately 11:30p-12:30a). I will be travelling to Spain (6 hour time difference from my home in Ohio). So my normal dosing time will be during the flight, which is fine. When should the next dose be, and how best to reverse the adjustment when returning to the USA?

Response from Dr. Young

What I usually tell my transoceanic travelers is to simply set your clock to the destination and take your drugs as usual-- this would mean a somewhat early dose on the east-bound leg and an later than usual dose on return.

Safe travels. BY
