What will happen if my baby missed her nevirapine syrup dose by 2 days ? What will happen if the time of the nevirapine syrup administration was changed ? Will that have any effect on the effect of the medication?

Continuous rx best: It is always best to have continuous treatment as we are looking at suppression of the virus. brief periods of missing meds suboptimal, but resumption asap, most important. Likely clinically insignificant. no need to worry it will not help in any way.

HELP PLEASE...I found out that I'm HIV+ after birth. They gave the baby Nevirapine. Is she protected from the virus? she won't be infected?

HIV: The chances of an untreated HIV positive mother to transmit HIV infection to her newborn baby is very high. Nevirapine (usually with other medications) was given to reduce that chances of your baby becoming infected. There is still a small risk that your baby may be infected despite the medicine. BUT I hope your baby will be in that category where the medicine will protect her from the virus ...Read more

A small word: with a universe of meanings. "In love" is an obsessive infatuation. It feels great but it's overrated as being 'true love.' Mature love is different. The object of love is priceless, greater than your most valuable possession. But you don't cling or control- you want the beloved to have the best, even if it costs you.
