Changing Medication (Atripla) Timing

Oct 18, 2009


I am seeking your advice whether I can change the time I take my atripla because I recently moved to Europe from the USA. In the US, I take my atripla at 10: 30 pm at nights, and now living in Europe its a six hours time difference so I have to get up and take my med at 4:30am, which is somewhat an inconvience because I dont get enough sleep thereafter before my day begins. Could I easily switch my med time to 10:30 pm European time? I am currently undetectable and my CD4 count is over 800 from my last blood work in September 2009.

Thank you for your kind response.


Response from Dr. Young

CB, bonjour to you too!

You can just switch to the European time and take your medications at 1030 PM. There won't be any issues with a single dose interval that's either too long or too short.

Be well, BY
