Response from Dr. McGowan

I am sorry to hear about the side effects you are experiencing on your PEP regimen. I would strongly urge you to see your doctor who prescribed the regimen. He or she would be able to suggest treatment for your "gas" and your "headache." I also think that you are under a lot of stress...taking your PEP regimen in the throes of taking exams. Speaking to your doctor may also help in terms of stress relief. I would speak to your doctor and not abruptly stop your PEP treatment. Thanks Joe
