Will my pills still work if I keep them in a weekly box?

The medicine box that we get at the ART outlet has a pack inside it to keep the pills fresh I think but pill boxes available in the market are made of plain plastic. Will my HIV medicine (TLD) remain fine if I use a weekly pill box?
Hi, how are you doing?
Yes. Using a weekly pill box is safe to use. This will not cause a problem with your treatment.
It is best to keep this box in a dark, dry environment/room to avoid water getting into contact with your pills. Keeping your pills here will mean there is no need for the little bag that keeps the pills fresh in their box.
