PEP timing

May 24, 2014

Hi Thank you so much for your service... I have started PEP program at 74 hours. How much it will be ok to stop HIV+.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

It's recommended that post-exposure prophylaxis be started within 72 hours of exposure. I wouldn't expect that starting at 74 hours would have much impact, but this is outside of the time range where were sure about the effect.

Hope that helps and be well, BY

How truvada works?
