Missing a DOSE
Aug 20, 2011

My mum missed one dose (night dose) of ART tablet. And she took the next dose in morning 8 o clock . will the drug become resistance as she missed it for over night. iam very much worried. please reply me.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Missing a single dose will not affect the efficacy of your mom's ART. Certainly we all try for 100% adherence to our antiretroviral regimen, but occasionally mistakes happen. We are all only human.

Don't worry. Your mum will not be harmed by a single missed evening dose of her medication, okay?
