What If....
Dec 29, 2010

I'm newly diagnosed, I was given a 30day prescription of ATRIPLA to see if it would work. I took my last pill last night Dec 28th, i had a doctors Apt for Dec 27th and it was rescheduled by the doctors office for Jan 3rd how will those days without med affect me and what should i do

Response from Dr. Henry

Though often things would work out OK I recommend getting refill now to avoid gaps in treatment and decrease the small risk for resistance or viral rebound to an even lower level. KH

Stocrin resistance ? Viral load detectable ?
Atripla's sides effects
