Should I retake?
« on: Yesterday at 06:01:25 PM »
Greetings everyone!

Last night I seem to have gotten food poisoning and this morning I took my Complera at 10:45am with a meal per the medications directions (as I always do). At about 12:20pm I threw up. I didn't see any pill. It had to be in my system for at least an hour and a half. Should I re-take? Or will the pill have been absorbed ?

I would just take the next dose at the usual time and not bother or worry over it unless you keep throwing up after every dose . It does not hurt to miss an occasional dose so donít sweat it . Hope you feel better .

Thanks for the reply!

Would you by any chance know if the med would have been absorbed though?

I read on thebody.com expert portion that most of the medicine is absorbed 15 to 20 minutes after taking them so if you threw up an hour after taking it, you are fine, dose wise.
