What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
It is very important that you not miss Combivir doses. If you do not take your dose 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.
