Missed drug
Feb 26, 2013

I missed my drug 30 minutes intervals then resume on normal 10 PM will that cause drug resistant ?

Response from Dr. Young


I get this question quite often- perhaps older medications that didn't work so well had a small margin for timing errors, but new generation medications don't.

You'll be fine. I tell my patients that the goal isn't to try to take the medicines by a stopwatch, rather to simply make sure that you don't miss a day's medications.

Be well, BY

Taking Atripla, Trizivir and Viread
