extra dose
« on: April 11, 2020, 04:10:06 pm »
Hello All,

I haven't posted here for a few years now. I have a question I wonder if any one can help as I cannot get in touch with my pharmacist at present. I am on Isentress (raltegravir) twice daily and one a day pill I take in the morning Abacavir / Lamuvidine. By mistake I have taken the latter again this evening. Anyone would kindly know what to do in this situation please? Should I miss tomorrow morning dose and have it say Lunch time? then go back to normal? Thanks for any advise,

Mark

Hi Mark,

Hope everything is going well.

Regarding double dosing, I've done that a few times over the years whilst taking Truimeg (Abacavir / Dolutegravir / Lamivudine)

If you feel unwell speak to your doctor, as regards to taking the next dose don't skip and take your next as normal is what I've always been told.

ASK POZ

I mistakenly doubled a dose of my HIV meds. Should I skip my next dose?

Try to make sure you take your medicine as directed. However, if you accidentally doubled your dose, take your normal dose at the next scheduled time.
