I wouldn't have taken them to begin with and I would imagine that the Dr. that prescribed them is not HIV educated.

I understand I should of just listened to you. What will happen if I quit them actually all three Drs have told me to deal with it one though when complained about side effects they acted like I was overreacting. Thanks again Teak

Hello so yesterday I finished 28 days of pep however missed two or three doses also dr gave me pills for thirty days is it ok to stop now or should I do 2 more days plus the missed pills. I'm just trying to get info I noticed this post from before where someone else was on pep for oral http://www.medhelp.org/posts/HIV-Prevention/Unprotected-Oral-incident/show/40166


I want to move along however I just want the facts and your knowledge do you with those studies of the people were on meds and or did they have high viral loads I ask cause the person I was with had large glands in groin on one side I've heard that could be not good thank you
