PEP Side Effects
Dec 23, 2009
Just started 28 day PEP of Kaletra and Truvada. Is there a risk that lipodystrophy will happen during this time? Is it reversible once I stop? Am hoping the diarhea subides as well! Thanks for all you do!
Response from Dr. Henry
Diarrhea usually diminished as your body gets use to the blast of chemicals in your gut! Lipodystrophy is rarely an issue after 4 weeks of treatment with your PEP regimen for which the risk of fat problems is low to modest when used long term. KH
