atripla and travel
Jul 13, 2011

i just traveled to a country 7 hours ahead of USA, i usually take atripla at 10pm USA time. when I arived to forign country I gradually started to take atripla 6pm usa time and continued for a month untill I returned to the usa. when I returned to the USA I took it at 6pm, following night at 7pm following night at 8pm follwing night at 9 pm and I ended up back taking it at 10 pm to go back to my regular routine.

I am concerned if I have built resistance that way. please advise and thank you for all of your help

Response from Dr. Henry

Modest, occasional alterations in timing of dosing for Atripla as you describe in response to travel is generally OK with low risk of viral breakthrough/resistance. KH
