Question

I’ve missed my medication for 3 weeks, is this an issue?

I usually take Atripla. However, due to financial issues I’ve not taken it for 3 weeks. Am I going to develop resistance?

Answer

Thanks for getting in touch.

If you’ve missed your medication for 3 weeks, your viral load will have rebounded. And yes, there is a possibility that you may have developed resistance. This is something that you’ll need to discuss with a doctor.

ARVs in most countries are free, which country is it where you live?
