oops I took it twice
Dec 31, 2006

Hi Doc,

I never ever miss my atripla, but I had a few drinks on Fri. night and I believe I took my Atripla 2X. God, I pride myself on being so responsible. Is this going to make my body a Toxic waste dump. What would you do if this ever happens again, would you take it again, or skip that dose? Can't wait to hear your thoughts.

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

A single double dose of your Atripla shouldn't pose any long-term issues. You might consider using a pill box- pre-filled- to assist in figuring out if you've already taken your dose or if you've missed.

I hope this helps. BY
