side effects PEP

Mar 15, 2013

I am on Truvada and Aluvia going on to my forth day for PEP do to possible exposure. I have not had any side effects yet and was wondering am I one of the lucky ones or is there going to be some side effects that hit me like a rocket down the road. It seems a lot of people have all these terrible side effects, or is the majority of people dont have any and are just not posting?

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

Consider yourself among the lucky. While Truvada generally doesn't cause any side effects, gastrointestinal side effects (even mild ones) are not uncommon with Aluvia (Kaletra).

Many people do tolerate their PEP regimens, and those with established HIV infection tolerate their HAART regimens very well.

Hope that helps. Be well, BY
