I've been taking the 3n1 pill. I supposed to have my refill yesterday but the hub informed me that the 3n1 is out of stock. This morning I was informed that the avail meds are teno and lami. Can i take these even without efav? Thanks a lot.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

The unavailability of HIV medications (so-called "stock-outs") is a significant problem in many parts of the world.

It is a bad idea to only take 2 of your 3 prescribed medications- doing so risks the development of drug resistance. Better to interrupt all of the medications until all three medications (or the 3 in 1) is available.

Hope that helps- and let us know when the medications are available. BY
