|why would i get kaletra and prezista (?) for exposure only?
Nov 6, 2010
is it normal to receive a regimen of kaletra (2 tabs 2 times a day) along with what i think is prezista (big orange pill) just to reduce my chances of contracting hiv after exposure? how long would you thnk is normal for sucha regimen?

Hello and thank you for your post.
One could consider simplifying your regimen to only the 4 daily Kaletra tablets; all PEP regimens should be taken for 4 weeks (or 1 month). You should be sure to get follow up HIV testing too.
