Q and A


I took two pills by mistake, will I be OK?

I’ve taken two pills by mistake, am I going to be OK? I take Atripla.


Thanks for getting in touch.

Though you only need one tablet a day of Atripla, you’ll be OK. There won’t be any damage.

    Hi Gloria,

    This isn’t how ARVs work. If you take more meds than you’re supposed to do, this will have a negative effect on your body. Your CD4 will increase, but you need to take the ARVs as prescribed by your doctor.

    Can I take two tablets daily instead of one in order to increase my Cd4 count?
