Change of med timings
Jan 31, 2012
Hi, I'm on second line, ritonavir, atazanavir and lamivudine 150 mg +zidovudine 300 mg, in the morning i take lamivudine+zidovudine at 11:00 hrs and in the evening 21:00 hrs ritonavir, atazanavir and lamivudine+zidovudine. My question is how do i change the timings i want to take the evening meds in the morning and the morning med in the evening because it seems like i have loose motion in the morning when i take the evening meds and as the day goes by i feel better.

Best to just switch one day. Take all 4 meds one night and then again the next morning and go on from there. That way the blood level will not drop. The one day with 2 doses close together will not be harmful and the levels will quickly reset. Eating bananas, apple, rice, bread may help the bowels regulate. Also, fiber can help even though the movements are loose.
