Re-dose After Vomiting?
Jan 12, 2003

I'm been taking Trizivir for several months with no problems. Shortly after taking the pill this morning, I vomited. Should I re-take the pill since I probably threw it up?

Response from Dr. Boyle

Yes, if you throw up shortly after taking the medications, you need to retake them. If this is a recurrent problem, you should consider contacting your doctor for an anti-emetic (a medicine that helps decrease nausea and vomiting), which you can take before you take your medications when you feel the need to do so.
