Combivir and Truvada as PEP
Jan 29, 2010
My doctor gave me Combivir (1 daily) and Truvada (2 daily) as PEP regimen. Does it make sense to be taking both medications at the same time, i.e. this more effective, useless or harmfull? Ihave been taking both for a week now and no major side effects
Response from Dr. Young
Further, I hope that you've mis-typed the dosing-- Combivir is dosed twice daily, Truvada is dosed once daily. I'd contact the prescribing doctor (or a HIV specialist) for further advice.
Be well, BY
