What is the best time of day to take Viramune/Truvada?

Feb 4, 2012

Hi there. I have recently switched my meds to Viramune/Truvada. I currently take them in the morning, and sometimes feel a little light headed/sleepy afterwards. Is it better to take them at night before bed?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

There's no magic time of day to take your medications; only that you take on a daily basis. If your Viramune is dosed once-daily, then your entire pill regimen can be taken at any time. Given that you feel a little sleepy, perhaps a bedtime dosing would help with symptoms (and your sleep too).

Hope that helps, BY
