Sticking with treatment

Sometimes a busy schedule and other things on your mind can make it hard to remember to take your meds.

If you are on HIV treatment, be sure to take the medicine as prescribed

Here are some ideas to help you remember:

Connect your pills with something you do every day, like taking them after meals.

How should I store INTELENCE®?

  • Store INTELENCE® tablets at room temperature between 68°F to 77°F (20°C to 25°C).
  • Keep INTELENCE® in the original bottle.
  • Keep the bottle tightly closed to protect INTELENCE® from moisture.
  • The INTELENCE® bottle contains a desiccant packet to help keep your medicine dry (protect it from moisture). The bottle of 25 mg tablets contains 2 desiccant packets. The bottles of 100 mg and 200 mg tablets contain 3 desiccant packets. Keep the desiccant packets in the bottle. Do not eat the desiccant packets.

Keep INTELENCE® and all medicines out of the reach of children.

Use computer reminders, telephone reminders, watches—anything that trains you to remember. Forgetting is the most common reason for missing pills.

Place a reminder note near something you use every day—the milk, your toothbrush, the TV. When you see your note, "it may help you remember to take your meds."

Stick a magnet on the refrigerator to remind you to take your meds. You can also use a sticky note or something only you recognize.

Make an appointment with a treatment counselor for HIV treatment support. Talking to professionally trained counselors may make things easier.
