Question

Recently had some low risk exposure to a csw in Bangkok where I reuse a condom by washing. And I'm having some sore tongue where I licked her vagina for almost 15 mins. I was freaked out n the doc prescribe me ricovir-em & edurant 25mg for PEP. Is this drugs toxic? I'm so freaked out. Please advic me doc. Feel like suicide for all the embarassment and regrets.

Answer

Hello and thanks for posting.

No need to freak out. Truvada (Ricovir-EM) is very well tolerated and rarely toxic, especially when dosed for the brief period of PEP treatment. If you have healthy kidneys at the start of PEP, it's very, very unlikely that you'll have any issues.

Hope that helps, BY
