|I took meds 40 minutes
Mar 17, 2011
I have been on ARVs for 3 months and am taking ritonavir, truvada and darunavir at the same time every day, but tonight I was 40 minutes late. Will I develop resistance? What effect will this have on my treatment regime? Please help, i am worried sick.

Hello and thanks for your post.
Ah, if only all patients worried about being 40 minutes late on dosing.
No, you're not at any risk of developing drug resistance because of this not-late dose of medications. We usually say that you have to completely miss 5% of your medication doses before we can measure any increased risk of treatment failure or drug resistance.
So, relax, don't be sick. Be well. BY
