missed day 2 of Truvada
Oct 21, 2010

Thanks Dr. Young. I asked the question regarding the Truvada/Combivir pep. This was prescribed to me in the ER. When I went to fill the prescription the pharmacist asked why I was also taking the Combivir saying the Truvada was sufficient. What should I do?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for the follow up.

Either medication alone would be sufficient for PEP. Truvada is generally better tolerated than Combivir and is dosed once- versus twice-daily. I'd just take the Truvada for the full 28 days.

Good luck, BY
