Question

Can you change ARVs when pregnant?

I’m HIV positive and I’m 3 months pregnant. I used to take my pills at night my doctor’s changed me for morning pills. I’m scared to take morning pills, is it safe for my unborn baby? Is it OK to change treatment when you’re pregnant?

Answer

Thanks for getting in touch.

Changing ARVs whilst pregnant is common, do you know what you’ve been changed to? If it’s Acriptega, then it’s OK to take this whilst pregnant. If you’re taking something else, could you please let us know.

When pregnant, it doesn’t matter what time of day you take your ARVs, the main thing is that you take them. Please see here: https://i-base.info/guides/pregnancy
