Once a Day
Sep 18, 2001

I have recently switched my meds to-Sustiva(600mg), Epivir(300mg),and Videx(400mg). I take all of these meds at one time (before bed @ 10:00pm. Should these be split up or is it ok to take them once every 24 hours?

Response from Dr. Boyle

All of the medications can be taken together once daily. You should know, as I am sure your doctor told you, that Epivir (lamivudine) has not yet been FDA approved for once daily dosing, although there is significant evidence that it is safe and effective at that dosing.
