two pills in one day?
May 23, 2008

Hi - I've been on Atrila since 2 October 2006 and I have been very careful about taking my medication regularly - I have never missed a night. One morning last week, I had similar symtoms to when I started taking Atripla - I feared that I missed my pill...but I am actually one pill short and fear that I took my pill twice in one this a problem?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

A one-time double dose of Atripla shouldn't be a serious problem. I would be a good opportunity to look at your medications taking habits and see if there might be a reminder system that could prevent this in the future.

Be well, BY

Is this an ok combo?
When is it too late for ARVs?
