Taking Prednisone while on PEP

Oct 7, 2011

Is taking prednisone safe to take while on PEP, or is there a chance that it may decrease the effectiveness of the PEP treatment? Prednisone was prescribed to me as a short-term treatment for an infection, but having done research on it, I'm scared it may make my PEP less effective. Please help. Many thanks!

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

While prednisone could cause mild-moderate immune suppression, there is no significant interaction with the HIV medications in any PEP regimen.

Hope that helps, BY
