Taking Medication While Crossing Time Zones

May 28, 2007

I read an article on your website regarding maintaining a medication schedule while traveling across timezones. I've recently developed a web site that might help. I wrote it to save my wife (a pharmacist) time at work. It's free to use and doesn't require registration.

Hope it's of use.

Kind regards,


Response from Dr. Young


Thanks for the tip. I generally tell my patients not to perseverate over the time zone changes (unless they are frequent or large)- a few hours one way or the other on occasion won't affect the potency of current HIV combinations.

Thanks for reading, BY
