Missed out norvir for several days!
Mar 25, 2006

I am on Norvir, Reyataz & Truvada, I have a rotutine: -I put out a weeks worth of drugs on a Monday night and this week, I idiotically didn't put the Norvir in (Well, the bottle of Norvir lives in the Fridge) -So for 4 days I have been taking Truvada, & 150mg unboosted Reyataz, I realised my mistake now and immeadiately took a ritonavir: -I am seeing my doctor next Wednesday, but it's the weekend already here and i am going up the wall.... -I realise you can't be 100% confident on this one, but am I likely to have blown this combo?

Response from Dr. Wohl

Almost certainly not - especially if your viral load is undetectable. While, I would not advise anyone to ever consider skipping doses intentionally, the chances that some irreparable harm occurred with this break is low.

You can relax but I would ask that a viral load be drawn during your upcoming visit to be sure.
