Did I ruin my Combivir PEP?
May 21, 2011

My first dosage was at 7:40pm taken right at the pharmacy, the pharmacist then suggested I take the second dose at 11:30pm.

Since then Ive taken my dosage after meals at 7:30am and 12:30pm every day. I have read that I need to take the medication the same times each day. Did I ruin my treatment?

Response from Dr. Henry

The change in time of dosing you describe should not be a major issue in the setting of post exposure prophylaxis. KH

How Long Am I Infected?
extremely high viral load linked to early onset hiv?
