This is Dr. David
Eviplera is an HIV medication, also called Complera
it contains 4 HIV medications: emtricitabine, rilpivirine, tineofovir and disoproxil.
yes i know, ive been taking it for 2 years.. now but tonight i have taken two instead of the one i normally take
each film-coated tablet contains 200 mg of emtricitabine, 25 mg of rilpivirine (as hydrochloride) and 245 mg of tenofovir disoproxil (as fumarate).
it is ok that you took two.
taking two one time is not dangerous.
you can let your doctor know the next time you see him.
just make sure you take one tomorrow.
and you should buy a pill box so you count out your medication for the week to decrease chances of taking two again.
i am worried as i have taken two will it harm me
you don't have to be worried.
if you are worried, you can go to the hospital or emergency room
but they will tell you that you are fine.
my partner takes them too and i took his by mistake as he got them out.. we are in spain at the monent
and is not that easy to get help... so you think i am ok.. and it wont harm me i have read where it says
it will not harm you.
never take 2 tablets
you will be fine.
ok, so i will be ok, ive never done it before.. i was just worried, and scared
yes, I know you are scared.
just make sure you take only one tomorrow from here on out.
and see your doctor once you get back to your doctor?
