Did I need a break time, if I change from Atripla to the new therapy Trovada Reytaz Norvir
Feb 5, 2013

Hello Dr. Young (Consider pl.s this is my write & correct question not that what I wrote 12 hours before as there was mistakes withe the names of the new treatment) As now I will change my treatment from Atripla to the new therapy Trovada, Norvir, Reyataz, did I can? or did I need, to make a break time between the two treatment?? or should I start immediately?? are there any risk if I stopped for one weak or more?? Thank you in advance for your kind replay.

Response from Dr. Young

Hi again,

No change in the recommendation. Just switch over directly, if you have all of the new medications.

There's probably little risk in the week interruption, but it would not be my best recommendation.
