Once you’ve made the decision to take medication, it is crucial to adhere to your prescribed regimen. I’m prescribed Truvada and Isentress. I take one of each in the morning and one more Isentress in the evening. Honestly, it’s not bad to take three pills a day. Although, they are rather large pills! I’m fortunate in that I don’t notice any side effects. My husband, on the hand, has some side effects from his one pill a day regimen of Atripla. The worst side effect for him is the dreams and they way it affects his sleep. He has VERY vivid dreams and falls into a deep sleep. With being husband and wife and both positive, we tend to remind each other to take our medications. I have done a fantastic job at adherence with my morning pills, but not as well on my evening pill. While I thought I had taken the pill each night, I would always end up with a few extra pills in the bottle at the end of the month. I know this must be from forgetting my evening pill. So to stay accountable, I bought a second weekly medication organizer. Now every Sunday, I fill the two organizers with my morning and evening pills. Problem solved! It’s so important to adhere to your meds. You may need to experiment and find out what works best for you and your schedule! But you must find something that works for you!
