Do You Have a Routine to Keep Up With Your HIV Meds?
May 21, 2014
No, I have missed doses.
How do you arrange to remember to take your meds on time?
I take them as soon as I wake up, so I keep a bottle of water and medicine right next to the bed. So my alarm goes off at 5:30. At 5:30, I roll over and take my medicine, [which consists of Reyataz, Combivir and Norvir], whether I get up or not, the water and the medicine's right there on the side of the bed , so I take it right then and there. Then my p.m. medicine, I'll take during the day. But it's the Combivir that I take twice a day. I'll take just the Combivir with me in a little, small discrete pillbox. I'll take it during lunch or when I'm having an early dinner. But I have an alarm on my phone that'll go off to remind me to take it.
