Missing a dose
Nov 9, 2011

Good Day,I am on ARVs (twice a day) and will be having a cone biopsy. I was told not to eat before the operation but am worried about my ARV meds. Is ok to miss a dose or should i take my meds?

Response from Dr. Henry

Generally OK to miss a dose of HIV meds for surgery-would double check with your HIV doc and/or pharmacist. KH
