Our expert says:
Zidovudine and lamivudine (Combivir) are antiretroviral medications that slow down the replication of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and may therefore slow the progression of HIV disease. They do not cure HIV nor do they prevent HIV transmission. According to the manufacturer if you miss a dose of Combivir, or in your case, take it later than recommended, take it as soon as possible. However, if it is time for your next dose, do not double the dose, just carry on with your regular schedule. It is important to take Combivir on schedule (thus 12 hourly in future), to assure constant, proper blood levels of the drug.
