Q and A


Can I take Descovy once instead of my usual HIV meds?

Hi, If I am unable to get one of my Davido pills tonight would it be OK to take a Descovy?


Hi there

Thanks for your Q and for letting us answer online.

As this is only for one day, it will be okay just to miss your normal meds today. Everyone forget occasionally and this will not affect your health in any way,

Maybe this is a typo but do you mean Dovato rather than Davido? Although there are generic versions of many HIV drugs that I don’t know the names of, Dovato is the closest name I can find.

As Descovy has different active drugs, missing a single dose is better.
