take PEP two months
May 8, 2013

Hello¡A I took combivir already two months.(pep two times) Will combivir cause any long-term side effect? BTW will combivir produce hiv virus in my body to make me infected?

Thank you for your help!

Response from Dr. Henry

2 months of Combivir in the setting of post exposure prophyyaxis would rarely cause any long term health problems. Combivir prevent HIV from multiplying and does not cause virus to grow. KH
