I took PEP / TRUVADA for 14 days (of the reuired post exposure 28 days) and got really sick with an unrelated illness & stopped for 7 days. any point in starting up again ?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

IMO, at this point, I think that you've derived the majority benefit of PEP; resuming treatment after a 7 day interruption (and 21 days after the exposure) probably won't add much.
