PeP after potential exposure
Dec 17, 2008

Hello there,

Have been with a female escort and engaged in unprotected cunnilingus and protected (with Condom) fellatio... Am terrified of HIV and now on PeP with Truvada/Kaletra. This is my 6th day. Yesteray, my stool was golden brown, today a little darker again... Now I am terrified of possible side effctcs of Kaletra, i.e., liver damage. Have an appointment today with a doc. Are my fears justified ? Should I stop PeP ? I'd rather continue but what are the chances to get a liver disease or kidney problems. Otherwise I am doing well on the meds ... Don't drink, no drugs

Please help

Response from Dr. Henry

Sever acute liver problems from Kaletra are very rare though GI upset with change in stools are relatively common. KH
