Can I Skip a Dose of My HIV Meds After 2 in 1 Day?
January 27, 2015
Sometimes, our brains get a little foggy. With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, making a mistake like taking two pills in one day is not uncommon. But when it does happen, you might have a little anxiety about what the medication can do to your body, and need to know a definitive answer from a doctor. On his personal Tumblr, Joel Gallant, M.D., M.P.H., an HIV doctor at Southwest CARE Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico, answers questions from people living with HIV who are concerned about a number of issues, especially adherence.
