Missing final 3 days of pep
Jul 14, 2013

I have forgotten my PEP and won't be home for the next 3 final days of PEP what should I do or will it not be an issue? Iv taken PEP exactly as prescribed before this incident

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

There's not much to do at this point (other than to try to purchase the last three days of medications).

Having said that, if you've otherwise been adherent to your PEP, I can't imaging that there's too much impact on the effectiveness of the treatment.

You should still have the recommended monitoring tests at 1 and 3 months after exposure.

Be well, BY
