Atripla and time change
« on: September 19, 2011, 01:31:24 AM »
I'm guessing this has come up on a previous post but I need some feedback.
I leave for business to the East Coast tomorrow morning. Normally I take my Atripla dose at 10:00 PM PST. I don't want to have to get up at 1:00 AM EST to take it this week if I don't have to. I have a difficult enough time with the time change the first few days when I travel, as it is.
Should I take the Atripla when I go to sleep at 11:00 or later EST ( 8 - 9 PST) this week? or is it OK to stick to 10:00 EST which would be 3 hours earlier than I normally would take - again just for the this week?
I've only been been on the Atripla for about 35 days but I would like to think I have enough in my system to have a 3 hour early window  to take my pill. Not sure, so thanks in advance for the wisdom   :)

If you take it at 10pm on the west coast it's ok to take it at 10pm on the east coast.  You don't need to change your schedule. 
Don't be fancy, just get dancey
