Skipping Doses
      11/10/10 12:28 AM

Hello Everyone, can someone please elaborate on the severity of skipping meds? My bf is positive and has been on meds for about a year. He's on my insurance and it kills the price down to a point where he can get his meds pretty easily. I discovered today that he's skipping doses..big time. He got his prescriptions of Norvir, Epzicom, and Lexiva filled on September 29th and he STILL has 14 of his once-per-day Norvir and Epzicom pills left. He's done this before and he told me that his last blood-work showed that his numbers actually increased so I don't understand why that didn't scare him into being more consistent.

I'm really worried about this because I don't want him to get sicker, but I have no idea how to even approach him about this. Is there some hope here? If he straightens up his act, should his health improve? Thanks.
