Atripla missed a day

Apr 24, 2010

I missed a day of taking it. Then took a dose and missed another day to change the time I take it Is that ok?


Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

Missing two doses in three days is a bit more than I'd like to see; but if your viral load was undetectable prior to this episode, you should be ok.

I'd be sure to discuss the circumstances with your healthcare provider at your next appointment. If you have frequent missed doses or need to adjust for time changes, there might be strategies to help.

Be well, BY
