|travelling w/o enough isentress-- skip all 3 meds?
Apr 3, 2013
I have been out of town for a 10 day trip. I take viread, isentress and maraviroc. I just discovered I am 3 doses short on isentress, but have enough viread and maraviroc. I am guessing I should stop all 3 until I get home in a couple days. Is that right? I am worried because for the last 9 months I have had low-level viremia (my viral load fluctuates between 60 and 200) so I have been trying to make sure it is not a compliance issue.

Hello and thanks for posting.
While missing a day (or a day and a half) of medications really shouldn't have any significant consequences if you've otherwise been adherent to your medications, I'd totally agree that it's better to skip all three of your medications, rather than just take two.
I hope that helps, BY
