Exercise while on PEP
Apr 17, 2013

Hello Dr. Young ! I have felt a little bit of drowsiness and fatigue on some days while on PEP but not enough to change my routine. I would like to know if 35-40 minutes of swimming at a moderate speed, 4-5 times a week would be OK, which is what I usually do. Thanks KS

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

There's no conflict with HIV medications and exercise. Indeed, most people would benefit from incorporating exercise into their daily routine.
