False positvie
Apr 10, 2013

Just finished my PEP meds today. Will take my first test in six weeks. At that time will it be possible to get a false positive due to my medication period? Thank you for your time

Response from Dr. Young


PEP treatment does not cause false positive HIV tests. Following a possible HIV exposure, you should have HIV testing done at 1 and 3 months.

Good luck, BY

ok Now I have gotten RNY surgery and started meds
Just starting medications....perhaps
