Question

Can I restart meds?

I’ve been off meds for 3 months, is it OK for me to restart them?

Answer

Thanks for getting in touch.

Yes its OK for someone who has been off treatment to restart. Ideally you should discuss this with your doctor. They should check your viral load and CD4 count as well as make sure that you haven’t developed resistance to your previous medication.

You could also talk to them about adherence and why its important.
