What should I do if I miss a dose of Viread?

If you realize you have missed a dose of Viread (tenofovir), take the missed dose as soon as you remember it. However, if it is nearly time for your next dose, simply skip the dose you missed and return to your regular dosage schedule. Do not double up the dose to make up for a missed dose.  Don't let your supply of Viread run out, and don't miss doses, because if you stop taking Viread for even a short time HIV may become resistant to treatment.
