7 Days Left
Feb 12, 2010

With seven days of PEP Treatment left--and if the current treatment includes Truvada 1x per day and Kaletra 200mg/50mg tablets 2 tablets twice a day--would it be okay to take all four Kaletra tablets with the Truvada at night before bed? Would it prove to be less effective? In advance thank you for your response to this question and thank you for all you do to get helpful information out there.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello, thanks for your post and kind comments.

Since Kaletra is FDA approved for once- or twice-daily dosing, there's no reason why you couldn't take your PEP all once-daily.

I hope this helps, BY

Is this a good PEP regimen for 28 days
