restarting a prescription
Feb 20, 2014

I havn't been able to take truvad, reyatz, and norvir for a month now. My insurance finally payed for the drugs. Is it going to be effective to continue with these drugs?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Yes, as long as you had an undetectable viral load when you were previously taking your meds, it should be fine to resume your medications.

Be sure to let your care provider know about the interruption in your treatment, so that your lab work can be interpreted accordingly.

Be well, BY
