missed dose
Aug 31, 2011

my husband is on efavirenz, lamivudine,and zidovudine. He missed his night regime last night and only remembered one hour before his morning regime. What effect will this have? Please help!!

Response from Dr. Henry

When patients are doing well on a regimen such as efavirenz, lamivudine, and zidovudine then missing an occasional dose usually doesnt cause problems. Your husband should be OK. KH
