Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
It is very important that you not miss doses. If you do not take your Atripla as scheduled, take the missed dose as soon as possible. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Be sure to tell your healthcare provider if you are having trouble remembering to take your HIV medications.
