Response from Dr. Henry

In situations like yours vast majority of cases the symptoms you are experiencing are side effects from the NPEP drugs or some other condition and not HIV Infection. If you actually had an HIV exposure (data not supportive that you had an exposure) then the NPEP drugs may decrease the low risk to an even lower risk. KH
