Storage + food Strocrin/Truvada
Jan 9, 2009

Dear Doc,

Happy New Year and thanks for all your replies.

My questions are as follow:

1) I have store my meds in the fridge as the room temperature can become high. One bottle have touch the fridge wall (where there are ice), so the meds might have been stored near 0 C. Is it OK ?

2) Excepting possible increase in the side effects, is there any problems taking these medication just after/before meal ?

Many thanks


Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post John.

1) I think that your medications will be fine...

2) You're correct- no problem with taking your meds around meals (except for the possible increase in side effects).

Be well, BY
