Delay in taking combivir

Aug 2, 2010

I on PEP and the pill i am taking twice a day is combivir. I take it at 9:42 am and pm but last night i forgot about it and realised it after like 7 minutes. I want to know if this has any major impact on my treatment. I am not taking any other drugs. Please let me know. Thanks.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

A delay of 7 minutes is inconsequential for any HIV medication, including PEP.

I hope that things turn out well for you. BY
