Accidentally took my meds a minute late
Sep 16, 2012

Hi, I am currently on Lamzid and aluvia, I always take my meds at 9am and 9pm but yesterday I took my meds at 9:01 pm. What are the side effects, will I develop resistant?

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

You're doing great. 1 minute (or 100 minutes for that matter) won't have any effect on your HIV medications. If anything, I'd suggest that you focus your energies on whether your a minute late but devote your efforts to other health issues (like diet, exercise, smoking cessation).

Keep up the excellent work on the adherence.
