Im taking Norvir,Reyataz,Truvada.I've missed 3 days of Truvada should I take 3 doses.At once to make up for missed ones

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

If you've missed doses of medications, like your Truvada, I would not try to play catch up by taking your three missed doses at once. You'll wind up with a lot of Truvada in your system and likely increase the risk of toxicity.

I'd just get back on the bus and take all of the medications as directed.
