Dosage time variations for Stribild
Nov 7, 2013

Hi Dr. Young,

I have been on Stribild for nearly a year now with undetectable VL and CD4 counts in the mid 600's. I take it at night normally around 10:30 to 11:00 with my dinner (pretty late, I know). However, once or twice a week, social and family plans require me to take it with dinner as early as 6:30 or 7:00. Is this time variation a big deal with Stribild or any new class of meds, like Complera? I seemed to remember you said at one point that it's not, but just want to confirm. Thanks, Dr. Young.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Moving your dosing time for a once-daily medication regimen by a few hours has no consequences. Indeed, what's much more important with Complera is to take the pill with a full meal (just as you're doing).

Hope that helps, BY

Atripla as second regimen?
