Hi.I have just started on combivir and stocrin for about 6 weeks. The combivir comes in blister pack. Is it ok for me to remove them ie a week supply and put in a bottle? I have been taking my med at 730am and 730pm. However, the time range has been +/- 1 hour. Is that fine? Thanks a lot

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

You're correct on both points. It would be absolutely fine to remove the Combivir from the blister pack. A time range of +/- several hours is typically acceptable.

Be well, BY
