Taking half of my Atripla pill
Apr 7, 2013
I am between insurance on a new job in a new state and wanted to know if it would be okay to cut my Atripla pill in half so it will last until my insurance starts. I have been taking my daily dose for about two and a half years so far. I care about my health and don't want to run out.

Hello and thanks for posting.
It would be far better to run out than to take a half dose for weeks (or months).
