What is PrEP?
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) refers to medication taken people at very high risk for HIV take HIV medicines daily to lower their chances of getting infected. A combination of two HIV medicines (tenofovir and emtricitabine), sold under the name Truvada® (pronounced tru vá duh), is approved for daily use as PrEP to help prevent an HIV-negative person from getting HIV from a sexual or injection-drug-using partner who’s positive. Studies have shown that PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV if it is used as prescribed. PrEP is much less effective when it is not taken consistently.
What is PEP?
Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) refers to taking antiretroviral medicines after being potentially exposed to HIV to prevent becoming infected.
GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM immediately or within 72 hours after a recent possible exposure to HIV to start PEP regiment. If you are prescribed PEP, you will need to take it once or twice daily for 28 days. PEP is effective in preventing HIV when administered correctly, but not 100%. If directed, follow up with PCM or your prescribed provider.
