Truvada + diarrhea
May 19, 2012

Docs, I am taking truvada as PEP, and one hour and forty five minutes after I took it, I am dying to go to the bathroom (I am holding - it is diarrhea). Should I take another pill in case I go to the bathroom, or the fact that I am holding suffice? Thanks!

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

There's no need to redose your Truvada PEP in the event of diarrhea.


Can HIV be transmitted to other partner during PEP?
I'm hiv positive
