|skipping a dose s
Dec 4, 2012
I am wondering if it is ok to skip a dose of Atripla for New Year Eve. I have been taking it everyday since August of this year. My doctor says I am doing well. I have heard and read opposing theories. specially about FOTO or five days on two days off. Can you shed some light on this theory as well as if I can skip one dose a month to have a night out??

Missing a single dose of Atripla for someone who is doing well on it (suppressed virus) generally would not be a problem for most patients. Would let your HIV doctor know about it. KH
