|Prednisone and PEP
Oct 14, 2011
Is taking prednisone while on a 4-week PEP treatment safe or is there a possibility that it may lower the effectiveness of the PEP treatment?
| Response from Dr. Henry
Unless doses of prednisone are high (ie >> 20-40 mg/day)I would not expect prednisone to significantly impact the anti-HIV effect of a post exposure course of standard antiretroviral medications. KH
