I take Combivir and Sustiva at the following times: 6:30-7:00am(combivir), 11:00-11:30pm(combivir/sustiva). How will Day Light Saying Time effect how these drugs work. Before taking them, my viral load was 24,000 and my CD4 was 357. After a month on the meds, my viral laod is undetectable and my CD4 is 457. Please advise

Response from Dr. Aberg

You should keep the same time schedule as you do for all your other daily activities. Being off for an hour with the time changes twice a year will not effect your medications. Congratulations on doing such a great job taking your medications.
