missing pills

Oct 24, 2013


I have been on truvada/prezista/norvir for about 1.5 years. I have never missed a dose. I will be unable to obtain prezista/norvir for a few days -- should I continue to take the truvada, or should I stop taking all HIV medications until I obtain more prezista/norvir?

I am worried about resistance.

Thank you.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

In the event of only having part of your treatment, I'd recommend holding all of your HIV medications until you have the complete regimen. I would not recommend just taking Truvada.

Hope that helps, BY
