Q and A


I left my meds in a car will they be OK?

I left my arvs -efav-teno-lamivudine inside the car at the passengers seat (inside its bottle and inside my bag) for about 2-3 hours in the parking lot under the heat of the sun about 28-30degrees celsius temperature in our city during those hours. Will my arvs potency and efficacy be affected? I am quite worried because of this stupid mistake. Hope to hear a reply


Thanks for getting in touch.

There’s no need to panic, your ARVs will be fine. They’ll still do what they need to do, which is help with your HIV.
