Dear Dr. while having sex my condom got broken. after 15 hrs I took Tenofovir 300mg + emtricitabin 200mg + Atazanavir 300mg + Ritonavir 100mg combination as PEP. Will this combination works for me. Now I am on 7th dose. please advise me on this.

Response from Dr. Young

HI and thanks for posting.

You're on an acceptable PEP regimen- and started well within the 72 hour window following exposure. This is a regimen that should be taken with food (the atazanavir).

Make sure that you complete the 4 weeks of treatment and get medical and laboratory follow up.

Be well, BY
