Potential Overdose
« on: September 30, 2013, 09:36:19 AM »

So I have been on complera for a month now and since Friday I have been away on vacation.

I did not take my bottle of pills but my key chain with three or two pills and my pill box separated by days. My problem is that I am not sure whether or not I had two or three pills in the key chain and because of that i fear that on Saturday, I might have taken two pills instead of one because I was at a restaurant and took the key chain but did not use it because I left in time but then I went home and took my pill and cannot remember the source.

I have been good in adhering to my pill schedule; just perhaps two hours late twice since I started. I am worried that the potential overdose may be an issue. As I said, it's a hunch and so I will not know for sure until I get home.

Any thoughts?

You will be OK ... One extra dose in all likely hood isn't going to harm you .
