Hey all -- It's really late... I took my evening meds (one combivir and one sustiva) a couple of hours ago and went to bed. I just woke up, confused and evidently had dreamed that I hadn't taken meds at all today. Shot out of bed, rushed for my pill counter and took a whole day's worth of meds (two combivirs and one sustiva). Immediately after, I realized my mistake and couldn't throw them up. Now I've got way too many meds in my system. It's 3:30 a.m. and I have no one to call. Please help. What should I do? I basically feel fine, I'm just scared that I fucked up my meds. PLEASE GIVE ADVICE, ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE A PHYSICIAN...

  • red pill? or blue pill?
im no doctor.
dont know the correct answer.
my experience: one time I doubled the sustiva by mistake - and had a very nice "trip".

for the future, perhaps get some record keeping method - a weekly pill sorter or hatches on a piece of paper or in your calendar, whatever.

If you tripped, hope it was a good one! cheers
