well, you could count your pills ... 30 minus the days you've taken so far

or think really hard if you had any familiar dreams or buzzings that you usually experience after dosing

or think better safe than sorry ... and take one .... I've taken an extra one by error the next morning [really weird to buzz in broad daylight to me] ... the sustiva is long acting so you'll probably be all right if you don't.

just get back on track as soon as possible. -YaKa

May I suggest using a pill case that has the day labeled on each compartment? They are pretty inexpensive and since you are on Atripla, you probably don't need a very big one.
Having pill cases certainly were helpful to me on previous regimens.

Good luck,
Sharkie

dont worry about taking two so much according to my bud the pharmacist if it only happens once beside in south africa there are reports of people taking multiple sustivas  for the hallucinogenic properties 
my gut feeling is that the mg of these drugs is so so small in comparison to your body weight

200mg= .2g = .0002kg and body is 80kg or 80,000g

sure there is danger but the horrible things people do to thier bodies daily for decades - drugs, alcohol, meth, shots, daily cigarettes with 200 toxic substances some people smoke a pack a day -- keep it all in perspective

also think of the million who work in factories with toxic chemicals or mines for 40 years with coal dust

dont worry about one pill
and if something serious happens call 911 or go to Dr.

people sacrifice thier entire lives in sulfer mines in 100s of countries to better thier kids lives etc.

Hi There,

Well, You could count your pills. I think we have all probably done that on one or more occasions when we think we missed a dose. ( I know I have)

Best advice ( as suggested by Sharkdiver) is to get yourself a pill case. Their inexpensive, you can pick one up at any drugstore. They come in very handy !!


Take care----Ray

I use to be on the A'TRIP' LA regimen, and accidental took two once myself.. I remember getting extra dizzy, and it felt more stressful on my body.

Personally, I think you'd be just fine missing a dose, rather than double it.  Those drugs are very strong, and remember, you are taking a cocktail of three drugs.  They do linger in your body for a few days, even after stopping the meds.  Missing one dose is not going to make a whole lotta difference.

Also, your viral load is most likely undetectable, so, it would take some time, maybe months for it to multiply up to an unsafe level.

Hope this helps.

I would check with you doctor about what you should do in case you are late taking one.
For instance my doc recommended taking my "meds" immediately if I am late and then at the normal time, even if it is too soon. (i'm not on Atripla btw)

skipping a dose altogether?  I'm I bet your doc wouldn't recommend that.

I know that sucks huh??  I take Atripla also I some times forget if I took it at nite the same as you.  I have found that right after I eat I take my pill & put it on the nite stand so if I do fall asleep & wake up if its there I take if not I assume I have.  My Doc says I can miss once in awhiloe with no prob;lem.

I awaken the following morning to take my vitamin, and mistakenly took  an Atripla. Now I leave viatims in kitchen and Atripla in my bed room. I don't use one case for both. It's dangerous. Although the top is am. and bottom is pm you can mistakenly take another atripla. Counting means nothing if you have both items in the daily pill case.

I had two similar episodes where I thought I missed a dose of the miracle drug.  I likely took a double dose and had no problems.  My doc thinks that was preferable to missing any doses

I take a sharpie marker and write the date on the bottle when I open a new one.....that makes it easier for to count backwards.   

I have an app on my phone to, that makes me check a box.... and I started the count at 90,  but it says I have 20 left and my physical count says I had 19....  so maybe I did take 2 one night.

I am going to get a pill box.
