hiv meds
May 3, 2010

do i have to take my hiv meds same time everyday

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

Most contemporary HIV medications don't have a strict time requirement. In general, I instruct our patients that they have a 3-4 hour time target to take their medications, and even then, an odd dose outside of this window isn't the end of the world.

I hope this helps. Be well, BY
