my bad
Oct 2, 2002

dear doc.i usualy take my meds with me whearever i go i recently found one of my combivir pills in my pocket so i am assumeing i missed a dose will i was going to take it but had already taken one for that day.also on another day i couldnt remember if i had taken my morning dose at 11 am so i took one at 3pm and then my night dose at 11 pm as far as i know these are the only 2 problems i have had sence starting 10 months ago.will the fact that i may have takin 3 in one day and missed a dose another day screw things up? please answer

Response from Dr. Young

With only 2 suboptimal doses in 10 months, you should be fine. Most experts look to a 95% adherence rate as excellent. Your numbers are closer to 99%... Good luck. -BY
