Missing meedication
Dec 23, 2009

I have been taking Atripla for the last two years. Unfortunately, I had to miss my medication for two days in a raw because I was out of medication and the pharmacy that has my prescription and also my doctor office were closed due to the inclement weather where I live. I have never missed my medication in the past but I am a little bit worried if I am facing any difficulties due to this reason.Please advise.


Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

If you've otherwise been adherent to your Atripla, I wouldn't worry too much about two missed doses. The risk of treatment failure at this point would, in my opinion, be vanishingly low.

I hope this helps the worry.

Happy holidays,
