PEP took one instead of two as a start

Jun 24, 2014

I had unprotected sex with a confirmed hiv positive woman for 10 minutes, I was put on stocvir and combivir at the 70th hr. Instead of taking two combivir, i took one combivir and one stocvir, and in the morning i took one combivir, i realised at 1pm the dose was wrong so i topped up a combivir and in the evening ill resume to 2 combivitr and one stocvir!

Please advice if ive completely messed up the dosage?


Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

While taking a double dose isn't ideal, other than increased short-term side effects, there's little consequences in a single episode.


took Atripla too early, when should I take next dose
i am on pep with Atripla, side effects are unbearable
