How much should i trust the Aspen Lamzid tablets
Nov 21, 2012

Had sex with a guy that i didn't know his status but claiming that he is clean. I knew that i was negative. I then went to the doctor after 36 hrs of exposure that's when i was prescribed to buy the Aspen Lamzid. How sure can i be that they will work as i am not sure of the guy status. How many percentage would you rate the aspen lamzid how it works? very stressed and worried.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello,

Aspen Lamzid is one of several PEPFAR-approved generic versions of AZT+3TC (lamivudine); so I'm not generally concerned about its' quality.

Now as for your post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP), AZT+3TC is among several recommended regimens that should be taken for 28 days (4 weeks) after a possible exposure. If you had a significant possible exposure, then PEP is reasonable.

As for clean, or not-clean, I won't get into. You can't tell if someone is HIV infected simply because the look well. I also want to try to gently correct your jargon. People might be HIV+ or HIV-, but this doesn't mean that people are either "clean" or "dirty"; rather people are people. Some of them might have a communicable disease.
