Resistance to Atripla if you don't take it on time or miss a dose

Nov 14, 2008

I usually take Atripla at 11pm at night, last night I fell asleep at 9pm and awoke at 5am and then took Atripla. Couls this cause me to become resistant to it? This is the first time I have actually missed a dose on time. I have been taking Atripla for a few months now but before that I was on Sustiva and Truvada for at least a year and have always been undetectable with my viral load, plus my CD4 count is over 300

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

You don't need to worry about missing a single dose of your medications-- it would be strikingly unusual for this to be the cause of treatment failure or drug resistance.

Be well, BY
