Are there any other ways to help overcome the sickness experienced on PEP?
Apr 29, 2011

Hey, other than the anti-sickness medication including in PEP is there any other ways or medicines available over the counter that can be taken in conjunction with PEP to ease sickness?

Response from Dr. Henry

Depends on many issues such as which HIV drugs are being used, what specific symptoms are being experienced, and the underlying health of the patient on PEP. A variety of antinausea, anti gas, anti loose stool, pain meds can be offered. KH
