PEP and no dose sched
May 2, 2005

My bf is on a PEP and the doc didn't tell him what sched to take these toxic pills. just prescribed Crixivan, retrovir, and i think Epivir. He thinks he has a heart problem. Should he have gotten a schedule. he's taking 4 pills at once 3 times a day and 1 twice a day. What should i do? Help I dont want him to have heart attack

Response from Dr. Henry

It is unlikely that 4 weeks of HIV meds taken during PEP would trigger a heart attack--those problems generally take many years to develop. KH
