Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

Eviplera is an HIV medication, also called Complera

Dr. David :

it contains 4 HIV medications: emtricitabine, rilpivirine, tineofovir and disoproxil.

JACUSTOMER-1obpduly- :

yes i know, ive been taking it for 2 years.. now but tonight i have taken two instead of the one i normally take

Dr. David :

each film-coated tablet contains 200 mg of emtricitabine, 25 mg of rilpivirine (as hydrochloride) and 245 mg of tenofovir disoproxil (as fumarate).

Dr. David :

it is ok that you took two.

Dr. David :

taking two one time is not dangerous.

Dr. David :

you can let your doctor know the next time you see him.

Dr. David :

just make sure you take one tomorrow.

Dr. David :

and you should buy a pill box so you count out your medication for the week to decrease chances of taking two again.

JACUSTOMER-1obpduly- :

i am worried as i have taken two will it harm me

Dr. David :

you don't have to be worried.
