What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
It is very important that you not miss fosamprenavir doses. If you do not take your fosamprenavir as scheduled, take the missed dose as soon as possible. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule.
