Took my atripla late
« on: October 13, 2010, 03:46:31 PM »
I have been on Atripla for about 16 months.  So far so good but last night my alarm went off and i thought i took my pill but the phone rang, and yada yada, i just noticed that i did not take the pill. So now it is 16 hours late.  I took it now but not sure what this means.

I have been really good with it.  In the last 16 months, i have screwed up twice. I normally take it at midnight and once i took it at 430 am and once at 6 am.  That is still 98% compliant.

Any thoughts?  Not too much i can do about it now but im not too sure if this is something to worry about.

You'll be fine.  As long as you are undetectable (which I presume you are after 16 months of taking this pill) and your adherence is at 95% you don't have a thing to worry about.

i was undetectable as of a month ago so i assume i still am.  I had some sort of a flu like thing going on and my cd4s were kind of low but what ever i had has cleared up and the Dr. feels that if i had some sort of flu or infection, that would cause the cd4s to drop off and was not at all concerned.  He  just said we need to keep and eye on it.  I was tested for Hep C, and all those other fun things and all is well. Not sure what this was but he said not to worry about it and we just have to keep an eye on the CD4s for now.
In fact while i was writing this, he called me back and sorta laughed at me for stressing over it so i guess its nothing to worry about.
Thanks for the response
