smoking tobacco while on aspen lamzid PEP
Apr 1, 2012
Will smoking of tobacco neutralize Aspen Lamzid?
I have been on AL PEP for 3 weeks after a possible contact with infected blood. I have taken no alcohol and have not smoked tobac co at all. However, without thinking I lit up and smoked half a cig. Will this affect the PEP and neutralize it?
Will I now be at risk of contracting HIV?

Hello and thanks for posting.
While I never recommend tobacco smoking, smoking won't impact the effectiveness of PEP.
Be well, BY
