Missed one dose
Jun 29, 2010

Dr, I am only two weeks into treatment but I missed one morning combivir pill - is this a significant problem? Is there anything I can do to compensate?

Response from Dr. Young


A single missed dose generally isn't cause for concern or need to re-dose; rather, I would use the experience to think critically about the reasons for the miss and if there are strategies to avoid this in the future.

Be well, BY

Doctor overly zealous in treatment adherence?
