Missed a dose
Apr 2, 2008

Dear Dr Henry or Dr Conway: I have been on Truvada and Nivirapine for 10 months and my CD4 count is 500 and VL undetectable. I take one dose a day at 9pm. However, I accidentially missed last night's dose. When I woke up at 8am and remembered this, I immediately took the dose. I am quite worried now.What should I do for the next doses.

I look forward to your early reply.

Thank you Peter

Response from Dr. Henry

Missing an occasional dose as you describe should genjerally not be a problem. KH
