Do I Double Up My Truvada If I Miss A Tablet?

If I miss a tablet of PrEP one day, should I double up the next day?

No. The good news is that there’s a bit of wiggle room when it comes to daily PrEP, so if you miss one day, it’s okay, you don’t need to take two tablets the next day.

You just take your tablet as you normally would, and continue forward. It might be worth considering perhaps putting an alarm in your phone, to help remind you to take the tablet every day.

I usually recommend that people have a little pill container that they carry in their bag, with one or two extra tablets in there, that way if you forget to take the tablet in the morning, you do have one spare with you, should you require it.

If you are taking PrEP on demand it’s important to not miss tablets. If you miss a tablet of intermittent PrEP talk with your PrEP doctor immediately. You may need to go onto PEP
