after 28 days some kaletra pills remaianing
Feb 18, 2011

This is my 28th day on PEP and I jave missed 5 pills of Kaletra in week 1 out of 28 pills but did not miss Truvada. Do I need to take these 5 or 4 pills on 29th day or just leave them.

Response from Dr. McGowan

Since you have completed the 28 days there is no need to take the few left overs. The key time is at the onset of treatment and completeing 28 days. There is no harm in finishing off the kaletra tabs but would not expect much added benefit.

Good luck on your follow-up tests.
