Aspen Lamzid and Rabies PEP
Apr 16, 2012

I may need to get rabies treatment but I'm still on my course of PEP (Aspen Lamzid) due to possible HIV exposure.

Will the meds work against eachother? I don't know what to do and I'm freaking out. Do I stop the Aspen Lamzid and risk getting HIV? Or do I risk getting rabies? Please help as you have been extremely helpful to me already

Response from Dr. Young


Though I'm sure that this interaction has never been studied, there shouldn't be any significant interactions between your PEP treatment (Lamzid, Combivir) and the rabies treatment.

Be well, BY
