Truvada overdose(During PEP)
Dec 27, 2013

I started PEP yesterday. First <12PM> I took 1 truvada & 1 Isentress. But I did a mistake when 12AM. I should take only 1 Isentress but I took 1 truvada & 1 Isentress. Is there any reduction of effective of PEP? What should I do?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Taking a double dose of Truvada won't decrease the effectiveness of your PEP and shouldn't have any effect on toxicity (as long as you started with healthy kidney function).

I'd suggest using a pill box to help you remember which pills to take and when.

Hope that's helpful, BY
