Sticking with treatment

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

Sometimes a busy schedule and other things on your mind can make it hard to remember to take your meds. Here are some ideas to help you remember:

  • Connect your pills with something you do every day, like taking them after meals
  • Store INTELENCE® tablets at 25°C (77°F); with excursions permitted to 15° to 30°C (59° to 86°F) [see USP controlled room temperature]. Store in the original bottle. Keep the bottle tightly closed in order to protect from moisture. Do not remove the desiccant pouches
  • 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, you’ll 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 can make things easier
