Taking HAART during ARS may delay seroconversion

I've heard that taking HAART during ARS may delay seroconversion, could be up to 12 months. Is that true? In what other circumstances could there be such delay.

You mean PEP. That is why if you are given PEP you are advised to test 3 months after your last dose of medication.

Anyone please, if Baraclude can have similar or partial effect as PEP drugs. Thank so much!

NO, it does not have the same effect as the retroviral medications for treating HIV. I believe you've been told this in another thread. Works good for HBV though.

That means I don't need to stop Baraclude and wait 3 months for another test?
