Missed a dose?
« on: November 13, 2018, 08:37:10 pm »
Hi everyone,, im new here, dealing with this one year now, and UD.

The other day I had unprotected sex with my GF and teh following morning realized I missed 1 day of my Genvoya.  Been taking this almost a year now with no missed doses.  Im kinda freaking out about if there could have been a possibility i put her at risk unknowingly.

If you were UD for 6 months then missing one pill is OK.

Just donít make it a common practice.

 Setup some type of a reminder to take your pills would be good. The Rxís these days are much better then in the past.

Just be careful and Iím sure she is aware. Is she on Prep?  (And no you donít need to answer).

Wishing you the best.

Welcome to the forum.

Can only echo the same, You missed a dose, that's life it happens, just don't make it a habit.

Look we should all try for 100% adherence but no panic or stress is needed over a missed dose when it does happen. That's life, and it happens to the best of us.

Optimal adherence is often cited as 95%, missing 1 doze in a blue moon is simply not going to create a transmission risk.

Take it easy

Besides being UD and having a girlfriend, how are you doing/feeling otherwise?

Probably shouldnít say this out loud and donít want a lecture but I miss at least 2 doses a month every month. Iíve remained undetectable for years.
I once had a friend who used to take week long breaks and another friend who only took meds every other day - all stayed undetectable.
My point is not to advocate missing doses, just not to be worried if you do. Occasional missed doses is ok so donít stress!

I remember the FOTO study...Five On Two Off....with people on Atripla. The study showed that patients on Atripla that took their meds M-F (five days) and abstained on Saturday and Sunday, stayed undetectable....The study was small and most doctors wouldn't encorage it but it spoke to the long half life of Atripla, specifically the efavirenz component.

I have learned my lesson.. Seeing different Dr's each time i visit them, my replies will be "Ya.. Ya..Ya... 11 Pm sharp" Otherwise, i get "the look" from some Dr when i say within +/-2 hours from 11Pm..  ;D
