should i be worried
Jun 26, 2012

dear Doc. I resently had sex with an HIV+ girl and the condom broke at the tip, we both heard it and i withdrew and quickly washed my penis...and im now on a Combivir PEP treatment i started it 14 hours after the question is should the medicine be taken twice dialy or once because my doctor said i should take it once a day for 30 days and is this effective?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Combivir (zidovudine + lamivudine) is dosed twice (not once) daily.
