I am taking isentress and truvada as follows. 8am isentress 15pm truvada 8pm isentress I have not received further instructions from my doctor; but some people are advising me to take truvada with the 8am isentress pill. This is my second week of treatment and I do not think I am experiencing any side effects (maybe some diarrhoea). Do you think it is important to change it? or should I leave as it is? Thanks a lot.

Hi and thanks for posting.
Typically people have an easier time being adherent to their medications if taken once- (or in your case, twice daily, compared with three times daily.
I'd recommend going for the twice daily schedule.
I hope that's helpful, BY
