Etravirine should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Etravirine?
It is very important that you do not miss doses. If you do not take your etravirine as scheduled, take the missed dose as soon as possible, as long as you are within six hours of the time you normally take your dose. However, if you miss a dose by more than six hours, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Be sure to tell your healthcare provider if you are having trouble remembering to take your HIV medications.
