Switch from summertime
Oct 24, 2012
Hello doc, I assume truvada-prezista-norvir o/d at 8pm (from 5 months,undetectable from 3). This week end we are changing the time, moving back 1 hour. What should I do for the best adherence? Should I change my usual treatment time at 7pm, or adapte to the new 8pm (1 hour late from usual)? How can I swtich to the new time without any risk? I think it's the same issue with travels in different time zones, but I couldn't find any advice. Thanks from Europe
Response from Dr. Young
Hello from Europe-
There's no problem switching the dosing of your medications by one hour. If it's convenient for you to take your meds at 7PM, then when the clock changes, just keep taking them at 7.
Indeed, you need not worry about a few hours variation in your dose from day to day.
I hope that helps, BY
