I’m a late 20 worker diagnosed with HIV. On a particular day I will take the HIV meds at 22.00 every other day however I took it 2 hours late today. Is it okay for this once or the virus will create resistance against my medications?
Thank you for your questions. The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions due to limited information provided by you. Click on this link (DoctorOnCall) for a private consultation with our doctors.
Taking your antiretroviral (ARV) medication late by a few hours shouln’t affect the viral load much. However, it is important that you take your next day medication at your usual designated time which is at 22:00.
To inquire more regarding your medications, we greatly suggest that you refer this to a pharmacist or medical doctor.

We assure you that our conversations are kept in confidentiality unless additional consultation needed with other medical parties. Thank you.
