Nov 6, 2006

Hi I took nevirapine adn vircomb(lamivudine +zidovuidine)twice daily and tonight i took two nevirapine tablets instead of one and another one vircomb.when I realized my mistake I took vircomb again. What I read from nevirpane bottle it said dosage shouldn't be more than 400mg per 24 hour and I took 200 mg in 8:30am and took 400mg in 8:30pm .So it is 600mg now.What should I do ?should I go and see my docotr? by the way I live in burma.

Response from Dr. Pierone

Generally a single extra dose of an HIV medication will not result in any significant problems.

Doctor will not listen, what should i do?
Is unprotected sex ok if partner has HIV infection?
