In brief: Missed antibiotic

It depends on many factors.
Best call your prescribing doctor to ask how to proceed.

In brief: Not detrimental

It is not detrimental that you missed just one day.
.I would resume it as soon as possible. Regular dosing ensures that your body has a constant supply of antibiotic to help fight off the infections more sucessfully. Skipping doses may allow the bacteria to grow and possibly develop resistance..(very important in treating HIV infections)..Resuming your med quickly and you should be fine. Good luck.
