Feb 18, 2014

a condom burst while having sex. i went to consult my doctor 3 hours later who gave me aspen lamzid tablets to take for 30days at 12 hour intervals. after 2weeks, i went for tests and was still negative. and consulted with a second doctor who proposed atripla. i stoped taken lamzid and am continuing with the atripla. will the pep work?

Response from Dr. Young


The most important thing is that you started your PEP treatment shortly after the potential exposure.

Whether you use Lamzid (Combivir) or Atripla is a matter of local resources and side effects, but do continue through day 28.

Hope that helps, BY

Dose error
Pep efficacy after 2 hours of exposure
