Missed a dose of Truvada+Kaletra (PEP) and took it again
Jul 30, 2012

Hi, I forgot to take my dose (truvada+kaletra) last night at 11 PM and just took it now at 06AM. At 10 AM I'll take another dose of kaletra. Will it be ok? Will the virus be resistent now?

Response from Dr. Young


The single late dose of your PEP won't have any significant impact, nor promote drug resistance. Indeed, if this circumstance, I probably would have recommended just skipping the late dose.

Be well, BY
