|Extra dose by mistake!
Oct 28, 2007
Hello Dr. Young,
I recently started my new regimen (Kivexa, boosted fosamp) twice a day. I used to take Kivexa at night, then I wanted to change it to the morning (I think it caused sleep problems), I thought I would go back/forward 2 hours per day until I'm at the correct time in the morning.
Thinking this way made me confused, and by mistake this mornign I took Kivexa along with the second dose of Fosamprenavir! this means 2 Kivexa doses separated by 12 hours! what are the effects of this mistake? is this harmful or dangerous? now that I have made the mistake, I guess I can miss my tonight dose, and continue to take Kivexa in the morning, right?
Please advise, I'm still confused with all these new medications!
Best Regards, M

Thanks for your post.
There usually isn't any significant issues with a one-time double dose of your medications. Yes, you could skip your evening dose and resume again in the morning.
Be well, BY
