Mixed Signals from Doctors & Literature
Nov 8, 2007
I have been getting mixed signals from several Doctors as well as some literature I read regarding minor time changes in the time I take my medication. I would greatly appreciate your opinion on this matter. I currently take Atripla once at night time, and due to many reasons, I sometimes take it 1 hour early or 1 hour later then the Ideal 24 hour time frame. Keep in mind I have never missed a nightly dose. Am I putting myself at risk for resistance or is a 1 or 2 hour difference built into the medications.
Thanks for your advise and experience in this matter. You all do great work!

Thanks for your post.
Your time schedule is fine. A 1 or 2 hour difference won't make any difference with your regimen.
