Took my meds twice in a day
Oct 29, 2013
I took my combo of meds two time in one day as a mistake doctor. I place my meds on a little container that is set by days of the weeks, somehow I got a little confuse and took my meds (presista,norvir,tuvada) in the morning as always but very early in the morning for some reason I forgot that I took them. I did re-take them at 7:30 pm. And now I stay taking them at 7:30pm because I dont want to go back for mornings, I am afraid that is too much changes and the virus can wake up or develop resistance. Please tell me if this is too bad, or if I can develop resistance because of this mistake.
CD4 : 650 and 49% No detectable
Thank you Doctor Young, GOD bless you !!! Day

Hello and thanks for posting.
While not ideal, taking a second or double dose of your medications once shouldn't cause any lingering problems other than short-term side effects (like nausea or diarrhea).
Since drug levels, if anything are going to be higher than usual, there's no risk of developing drug resistance.
Hope that helps, BY
