absorption of meds
Feb 11, 2011

i took z-pack at 9 20 pm the took my viramune and truvada at 10 20 then at 12 20 had to go to the restroom due to diarrhea . did the diarrhea affect the absorption of my meds

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for your post.

Since it was 3 hours from the doses of your medications, I don't think that the diarrhea will have any significant effect on the absorption of your medications. In any event, even a single suboptimal dose shouldn't affect the overall potency of your meds.

Hope you're feeling better, BY

Maybe missed a dose
