Hi Dr. I started PEP 2 days ago and next week I am scheduled to do a 2500 mile road trip. I am suppose to be doing most of the driving. Any advise on how to cope, or do you recommend I should postpone the trip.
After 2 days my side effects are mostly dizyness and a bit of nausea!
If you are having fairly annoying symptoms from a PEP regimen driving long distances may not be a good idea in some situations. You dont mention which PEP regimen you are tkaing-if it included efavirenz for example then the central nervous system side effects may make it problematic for some patients to drive long distances safely in the first weeks on treatment-I would pose that question to the prescriber specific to your PRP regimen and the likely driving pattern for the next several weeks.
