I think I missed my dose help!
Jan 7, 2013

Hello. I'm currently taking Complera. I Don't know if I took it this morning, or my multivitamin. My question is: Can I skip this dose, or should I take another? I'm really not sure what to do please help!

Response from Dr. Henry

Skipping a rare dose or taking an occasional extra dose of Complera (such as at next meal) are both acceptable-I would expect no problems to develop from occasional dosing mishaps. I would simply inform your HIV provider but again I would not expect there to be a problem (we often have our patients to use a pill minder tray to keep track of doses taken and not taken on a daily basis since it can be hard to remember for many patients.
