all meds at once

Apr 17, 2012

I am new to drug therapy and started on Truvada, Norvir and Prezista. I started taking the Truvada in the morning and the Norvir and Prezista 12 hours later with dinner. Should they all be taken together? Can I gradually move the doses closer together hour by hour gradually? Thanks!

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

If this is your first regimen (or so long as you don't have protease inhibitor-resistant HIV), then all of your medications can indeed be taken together.

There's no need to gradually adjust the time of the dose, just take them all together at the next convenient time.

I hope that's helpful, BY
