Missing one of the three meds prescribed

Mar 20, 2013

i am low on my medication and went to get them today and they weren't in. I have enough of my norvir and epzicom but i don't have anymore prezista left. Can i still take the norvir and epzicom without the prezista and start it back tommorow?

Response from Dr. Young


I don't recommend taking just two of your medications. Better to hold all three medications until you have the complete regimen supply.

A single day's missed dose won't be a problem and safer than potentially exposing the virus to an incomplete regimen.
