combivir and truvada
Dec 19, 2013
Hello Doctor, two nights ago I had unprotected sex with a sex worker in a very high risk area (Kenya). The next day I went to the hospital and started combivir and aluvia. that next night I went back to the club and found the women and we went for a test together. we both tested negative. I understand though that there 6-week to 3 month window time so its still possible i may have been exposed. Im also taking depakote, xanax, and prozac for dression and anxiety. Im very worried about drug interactions and already dont feel well on the PEP. In your opinion do think I need to continue the pep knowing she tested negative even though there is a possible window? thank you very much for your time.
Response from Dr. Young
With knowledge of your partner's negative HIV test, it seems like you had a relatively low risk exposure. Yes, there's a possible window period, so that might tip the balance towards completing the PEP treatment.
Hope that helps, BY
