Question about PEP.
      #275447 - 02/17/14 06:18 PM

I may have been exposed to HIV in this this saturday when i had sex with a female frien of mine, then, about 10 hours later i went to my doctor and he gave me Post-exposure prophylaxis. My doctor prescribed to me Biovir (Zidovudina+Lamivudina)300+150 mg/ 2 caps twice a day and Lopinavir and ritonavir (Kaletra) 200+50 mg. I'm using these medications for 24 hours.

My question is the following:
- In these respective drugs it is possible to contain HIV, like as vaccines, where the virus is attenuated??


I doubt very much that i might have caught HIV because i just recive an unprotect oral sex, I just took prophylaxis because I am a very suspicious men, could i say kind of paranoid. My fear now is get HIV or another disease from these drugs, there is this possibility?

Can I continue taking the medication even with 0% chance I have caught hiv Saturday?

I am very afraid of catching HIV, then if the "Kaletra and biovodir" have any chande to transmit hiv I'll stop taking it right now!

You cannot contract anything from taking the meds. It's not like the typical flu shot
