I missed a day with ATRIPLA. I'm worried I messed up.

Response from Dr. Young


If you've been otherwise adherent to your medications, missing a single dose shouldn't have any consequences.

Nevertheless, this is a good time to evaluate if there were circumstances that led to the missed dose that could be avoided in the future. Overall, your goal should be to miss less than 5-10% of your doses.

Be well, BY
