Storage Methods

Zerit capsules should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Zerit oral solution should be kept in the refrigerator and is good for one month after it is mixed by your pharmacist (after one month, you must dispose of any unused Zerit oral solution). Keep Zerit capsules and Zerit oral solution in an airtight container.
Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Zerit?

It is very important that you do not miss doses of this medication. If you do not take your Zerit 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.
