meds and my dog
Jun 4, 2010

I am not sure if i took my atripla or my dog got a hold of it and took it. If he did what should i look for in him? Will harm him?..I did take a dose myself just just was not sure if i the dog got a pill or i took two doses.

Response from Dr. McGowan

Don't worry about your dog, s/he will be fine. The meds are cleared quickly from the body and it will not be of any significance. If you missed a dose just pick up where you left off.....a rare missed dose is not going to cause things to unravel as long as your viral load has been undetectable (suppressed) up till now.

Best, Joe
