Can I stop meds for a week if travelling to Arab Emirates?
I’m traveling to the United Emirates for 7 days. I´m taking Biktarvy right now, knowing that I can not take HIV meds into the country…
Will I be ok if I skip those 7 days?
I´ve been taking ARV´s for a year now and I´m undetectable.
For only seven days it would be much better to keep taking your meds.
Biktarvy is a very small tablet, so you could pack seven pills in your hand luggage and say they are for something else, perhaps vitamins.
Although AE has this discriminatory policy, in practice some people travel with their meds, especially for a short holiday or work trip.
This would be better than stopping your meds.
