Combining single and twice a day medicines
Jun 28, 2013

Hi, I'm taking single dose (once-a-day) Duovir, but twice-a-day dose Viramune. Should I take it all together, once a day, or continue taking the Viramune twice a day?

Thanks, -R

Response from Dr. Young

Hello R and thanks for posting.

I'm not aware of a once-daily Duovir (AZT+3TC)--this combo is typically dosed twice daily. Viramune (nevirapine) can either be taken once- or twice-daily.
