Hi Dr. Young:

When I vacation sometimes my time zones change. How should I take my Atripla while I am away from my home. Normally, each and every night my cell phone alarms to remind me I take it and forget about it. Should I adjust the time if it is 3 hrs. either way?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

If you've been otherwise doing well and have an undetectable viral load, I don't think that an occasional 3 hour time shift will have any consequence.

Be well, BY
