Right timing any mistake so far?

Sep 30, 2012

Regards from Colombia. Dr McGowan I have been taking lamivudine+zidovudine 730 am and 730 pm and Efavirenaz at bedtime for nearly one month. For different reasons I took some of the doses 5, 10 or even 30 minuts later than that (3 or 4 times), but not skeeping any single dose. How wrong is that for developing resistance? Thank you so much.

Response from Dr. McGowan

Thank you for your question. It is best to take every dose, every day around the same time. That being said, your adherence is exemplary and will not increase your likelihood of developing resistance. Skipping a dose can have an impact but that has not occurred in your case. Thanks Joe

Prezista, Truvada, and Noivir for Prep?
