|Missing dose of PEP by a few hours
Sep 7, 2011
I have been in PEP for two weeks now and I don't think I've missed a dose. I'm pretty sure I have been consistent but sometimes I can't remember if I've taken it or not. But my main concern is that I missed a dosed today by about two hours and have missed it on some other days by one hour. How worried should I be in the effective of the medication. These past few weeks and the next two are driving me insane.

Hi and thanks for posting.
Being late a couple of hours won't ever have a significant impact on the effectiveness of HIV medications.
Good luck and good health to you, BY
