Non-Compliant

I just found out that I missed another tablet of Lamivudine + Zidovudine.
I'm having difficulties with medicine compliance.. my usual schedule is 12pm and 12am.

My phone will alarm but to my state of being busy, I take them an hour of two.
Now I missed one... again. I need to restructure my schedule.

I'm just having a hard time... I feel anxious (continued to my next post)



Ta!

You should at least have a 92-94% compliance rate per month for your ARVs to maintain the meds' effect.

I have missed out on some as well. I have told my doctors about it. They should know.

Just continue taking your meds. Work on a schedule that will really work for you and stick to it. But don't be hard on yourself if you find yourself missing a dose or two.

It also helps if someone reminds you about it.
