Missed Dose

Missed Dose

I've been taking Biktarvy since August of 2020. I missed one dose within a few weeks of first starting my treatment. Have not missed any other doses since then until a few days ago. I have an alarm set every day and have been taking my meds faithfully. Do I need to worry about this missed dose? I've heard that Biktarvy is a very forgiving drug...

Biktarvy is the best anti retroviral medication available right now. 1 missed dose won't do any damage. I have missed a few and am still undetectable.

It is ok if you miss a dose. My doctor says that it happens with everyone. I have missed doses and have an alarm set. I have shut off my alarm, get distracted and forgotten about it. Please do not feel bad.

It's recommended to take them every day. Missing a dose here and there is ok, it happens.
I'm actually on a study of taking my medication every other day. I'm 7 months in. Still undetectable. That equates to 3 months of no medication. I would NOT recommend this without doctor supervision though.
