Are Antiretroviral Drugs Resistant Because They Are Late Drinking?
, I odhiv who consume Aluvia type ARVs who take 4 tablets once. Yesterday I was late taking about 1 hour less, is the drug resistant? And for the next day, my schedule for taking medicine according to the original time or adjusted to the time when I was late taking medicine? thank you
HIV is a virus that affects the immune system. Until now there is no drug that can cure HIV. Current drugs aim to suppress viral activity in order to slow down the decline in endurance. The HIV drug currently in use is ARV / anti retro viral.
ARV drugs must be taken as directed by a doctor and must not be missed or forgotten. Drinking too late for one hour will not make the virus immune, but if you forget it, then the effectiveness of the drug will be reduced and the virus will be easier to cause a decrease in the immune system.
Therefore, you should make a reminder to take an ARV medication that is easy for you to see so you don't forget. For the next ARV consumption you can adjust as the previous hour or follow the last hour. The most important thing is to try to consume it at the same time every day. Do not forget also to routine control of the doctor according to the schedule provided by the doctor.
Hope it helps you,
