I missed my ARVS

Mar 26, 2013

I forgot my pills at home,I wont be drinking my morning dose. I take them twice a day morning and evening. What will be the concequences.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

If your adherence is otherwise good, a single missed dose on a twice-daily regimen should have little consequence.

Use the experience to see if there's way to help prevent this from happening in the future- perhaps keeping a spare pill box with an extra dose might help.

Be well, BY
