Afraid to Take all meds at once
Feb 3, 2014
Dr. Benjamin, greetings from Cusco - Peru. Thank you very much for your reply, I take tenofovir 300mg qDay, lamivudine bid and efavirenz Before bedtime, my viral load is undetectable and despite my cd4 stay at 180 since one year ago, I'm in good health. my question is if I can take all the pills together once daily without risk of virologic failure, develop resistance or increase Adverse Effects, I'm so concern about that. My dr told that tenofovir should be taken at morning but he didn't tell me why. Thank u for your answer.

Hello and thanks for posting from Cusco!
Yes, of course, you can take all of your once-daily HIV medications at the same time. Tenofovir does not need to be taken at any particular time of the day (day or night). Indeed your medications (or very similar ones) are commonly co-formulated into a single pill, taken (of course) all at once.
