To answer your question, there are articles that the body has regarding treatment interruption. My opinion, no you did not screw up. Most problems with HIV resistance to meds comes from being "hit & miss" about taking them - missing doses here and there. Complete cessation from what I have read, usually doesn't create that problem.
As for the side effects of the meds that you have, you may be better off with another combination, and be sure to get the package insert with each med and read thoroughly.
My solution to bowel distress is to take Metamucil daily, which I have done for years anyway to moderate effects of "protein loading". I am on Sustiva, Epivir & Zerit, without any real distress to my stomach or bowel. If I miss taking the Metamucil, I can shortly tell that I would be headed to a problem. Just a suggestion, I am not a Doctor but do my reading & research, and have been doing it for 16+ years so that I can make informed choices.
Breathe deep, keep the stress away and move forward!
