Response from Dr. Holodniy

Skipping one dose will probably not hurt you, but it is VERY important for you and the developing fetus that you try and not miss any more doses. You want to get your viral load to undetectable to maximize the HIV treatment effect and prevent infection in your baby. Side effects can include flu like symptoms, and some nausea or diarrhea.
