What happens if you miss your meds for a week?
What will happen if someone misses their meds for a week due to leaving them at home when travelling?
Thanks for getting in touch.
When a person misses their meds for a week, its very likely that their viral load will rebound. This means that a persons HIV will no longer be under control and they risk infecting someone if they have sex without a condom. There’s also the risk of drug resistance.
If this happens its important to discuss this with a health care professional. Restarting meds is important.
