Efavirenz and truvada exposed to heat in the car

Apr 2, 2013

Does efavirenz and truvada exposed some hours (6) to a heat of about 30-35C inside their boxes within my luggage in my car would still work?

I'm sorry for my english, I live in Mexico. Yesteday I traveled back home from my hometown and I found out that my meds were a little bit hot inside their boxes after spending some hours in the back door of my car.

I opened the new bottle some days ago and I'm worried that their effect on HIV will be diminished due to this heat exposure.

Thanks a lot in advance for your answer.

Response from Dr. Young

Abrazos, BY
