Can't remember if I took my meds

Hello guys,I actually can't remember if I took my meds today and I'm at work currently...
Is there a chance of resistance after 4 years of perfect adherence ? Is it ok if I take the next dose normally,because I honestly can't remember if I took the meds or not and I'm scared of double dosage.Thank you in advance...

No, there would be no risk of resistance, and yes, take the next dose at the normal time.

Fabio, are you using a daily pill box ? If not, you should get one.  Plenty of us here have missed doses.  I have missed more than a few doses over the years, and never had any issues. I just took the next dose, at the normal dose time.

I know it's easy, to get a little stressed out about this, but you will be fine ! If you have a pill box, you will be able to see if indeed you did forget to take it.

It will be OK !

It happens to all of us at some point.

Sometimes, I  have forgotten to take my nighttime meds of 1 viramune and 1 Epzicom.  I usually take those two 7:00 pm. Then I have woken up at 1 or 2 in the morning and realized that I missed them, because they are still in the pill box. So I have taken them then, 7 hours later. If I have missed it completely, and not noticed until 9 the next morning then I take the next dose at the normal time again.

I hope that makes sense !  :P

I missed two days before a blood draw, missing one happens occasionally but not two. The pill box is so useful, keeps me from skipping doses (mostly) or doubling up because I donít remember. Anyway, I had a slight blip from UD from the 2 day skip. Back to UD now.
