double medication

Feb 4, 2012

today I do not remember to have the normal medication sustiva maybe I have two time sustiva medication or maybe I have lamzidivir plus sustiva after five minute any problem please

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

A double dose of your medications shouldn't cause any long-term problems, only the increased risk of short-term side effects from Sustiva (namely the psychological effects).

This could be a good teachable time to make sure that your pill taking systems are as good as possible; perhaps a pre-filled pill box (container) could help you avoid doing this in the future.

Be well, BY
