1st Missed dose...
May 31, 2009

Hello, I have been on Atripla since October 2, 2006 and for some reason, on May 28, 2009, I forgot to take my medicine for the very first time...I've gone over two years and eight months withough ever missing a dose. I didn't realize that I forgot until the next night so, I went an entire 24 hour period without medicine in my sytem. I took my regular dose the next night - will this be a problem and is there anything I should do...or can do...Thank you, Kenn

Response from Dr. Young

Hello Kenn and thanks for your post.

A single missed dose of your medications shouldn't be any problem. If you've been on meds for this long with only a single dose, you're doing excellent with adherence.

Be well, BY
