Dear Dr. benjamin i exposed to risk full event of known sourse of hiv, so i want to start pep and i have AZT and lamuvidine so i want to know the dosage???????

thanks let me hear soon pls

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

Post-exposure prophylaxis should be started under medical supervision, so I hope that you're not doing this solo.

The usual dose for AZT/3TC is AZT 300 mg + 3TC (lamivudine) 150 mg twice daily. PEP regimens should be taken for 4 weeks.

I hope this helps. BY
