took half the dose of my kaletra tablet

Jul 15, 2014

Hi, I started to take PEP 58 hours after exposure, one truvada once daily and I Was supposed to take 2 kaletra twice daily, I misread this and took one kaletra twice daily. I have been taking my truvada correctly. It has been 6 days since exposure. Now I'm really worried that I've totally diminished the effectiveness of the Treatment. Is there any point of me carrying on treatment or should I just give up?

Response from Dr. Young


I don't think that you've entirely ruined the effectiveness of PEP at all, particularly since you been taking the Truvada as directed.

I'd continue onward and stay on schedule for monitoring tests.

Be well, BY
