Question

What do I do if I'm sick after taking my medication?

I was sick after taking my meds because I had a non-related illness. Do I need to take another dose? I was sick about 2 hours after taking my meds.

Answer

Most HIV medication have been absorbed within two hours.  Therefore if it has been more than 2 hours since you took them, you should not take another dose.

If you are sick less than an hour after taking them then it is probably better to take them again.

If you can still see the tablets in the vomit, then you should definitely take them again.
