Missed my meds

Jul 12, 2013

Hello. I have been on Atripla for almost a year and have never missed a dose. I was UD as of my last . Last night I fell asleep early and work up at 7am and took my pill. ( I took my pill the day before at 10pm) so now I am really scared for missing those few hours. What are my chances of developing resistance?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

No need to be scared. No risk of drug resistance. You run scant risk of problems if you miss even 5% of your doses. You've not missed one in 300 (or so).

Be well, BY
