adherance problem

Jun 19, 2013


Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting the longest single word question in history.

In brief, 30 minutes late to take your HIV meds is not late at all. I tell my patients that while it's a good idea to try to take your medications in the same general time, you have a several hour window to take them without the slightest of concern.

For more information about adherence, check out the AIDS InfoNet fact sheet on adherence.

Be well, BY
