PEP 3:30 late
Jul 12, 2013

Dear Doctors,

I've Being taking pep in a regular basis (7:00 and 19:00), but today (Day 21) I woke up a little late and I took it 10:30. I'm taking (AZT/3TC) and TDF.

I've started taking 17 hours after exposition.

Should I be worried and/or stop taking it?

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting your question about PEP adherence.

You started your regimen well within the 72 hour window of opportunity. A single late dose isn't a problem.

Best of health to you, BY

Infected recently but CD4 is only 6 per cent
