schedule for atripla

Dec 20, 2011

hi doc, what should be the best time to take atripla every day? thanks.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

There's no specific best time for taking Atripla, rather, since the medication can cause disorientation, the idea is to take the medication prior to going to bed. If you experience residual symptoms the morning after, then you could take the medication a little earlier.

Also, there's no need to be so regimented as to follow the minute hand on your (analog) watch. A time window of a few hours is generally considered acceptable.

I hope that helps, BY

atripla and zidovudine
