PEP medications from the Internet
Mar 31, 2012

Please could you recommend me reliable site(s) to buy online PEP medications such as Kaletra and Truvada. I have quite risky sexual behavior and I would like to have stock of these medications unless (or more likely, when) incident happens. If possible I would like to buy them from Europe. I can get prescription from my doctor.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

If you have frequent risky exposures, rather than using post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP), perhaps you should talk to your doctor about the appropriateness of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). Most current PrEP regimens use Truvada alone. There is a growing body of scientific literature that in certain risk groups, this is very effective (when taken with adherence) in prevention of HIV infection.
