HIV medication is most effective when taken as directed and at the appropriate time each day. Many people are concerned that the medications must be taken at the same time every day. While that is ideal, it can at least be taken at the same time every day.
If you are taking HIV medication and accidentally miss a dose or two, but remembered within 10 hours of when you usually take it, take it at that time. If you simply forget, simply take it the next day at the time you normally do. To avoid complications, do not take a double dose of the medication.
Irregular HIV medication use can cripple the medication or render it unable to fight off the virus effectively. Ineffective medications, on the other hand, may not be the best way to manage your health. This will only force you to seek out other HIV medications and begin the process all over again.
If you are having difficulty remembering to take your medication as prescribed, talk to your doctor or a peer about finding an alternative.
