Why was I given a 6 month dosage for PEP?

Question

I recently was prescribed a 6 month dosage of altripa vs the normal 28 day dose as a PEP. Should I seek a second opinion, as I just had my first dose and side effects are strong I could not imagine being on this for 6 months.

Answer

Hello and thanks for your post.

Your PEP prescriber is wrong. PEP regimens should be taken for 28 days (or 1 month) and no longer.
