Question

I missed my meds for 4 days, will I be OK?

I’m traveling for work and forgot my meds…Meaning I will miss 4 doses of Biktarvy
My viral load has been undetectable for nearly 10 years now and I am otherwise in very good health… so how dangerous is missing 4 doses?

Answer

Thanks for getting in touch.

As you know meds needs to be taken every day, this is to ensure that there is enough of the drugs in your system, Though missing 4 days isn’t advised, you should be OK. This is because it usually takes 7 or so days for a viral load to rebound. As soon as you get home, make sure that you take your meds. If possible you may want to have your viral load checked.
