I Accidentally Take Efivarenz Instead of Combivir

Jun 4, 2012

15 minutes ago, I accidentally take efivarenz instead of combivir. Can this affect my viral load? as well as my CD4 levels? My schedule of taking efivarenz is at 10pm tonight.. It's already 8:12pm. Instead of taking a double dose. Can I take my combivir at 10pm since I already take my efivarenz. Then resume my dosage the next day.. Thank you.

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

Your mis-dosing won't cause any significant issues with viral load or CD4 count. I would simply resume your dosing as scheduled at the next convenient time.
