Acidentally took double the dosage of viramune
Nov 3, 2012

I am suppossed to take one 200 mg viramune twice a day, and the second dosage of the day i accidentakly took two pills equaling 400 mg, is it going to hurt me? Is it ok?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

There's no problem in taking 400 mg of nevirapine- indeed, the medication is actually approved for this dosing (once daily).

I'd just skip your next dose and continue with your regular twice daily dosing.

Be well, BY
