Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP For Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, is a way for people who do not have HIV, but who are at substantial risk of getting it to reduce their risk of contracting HIV infection by taking a pill every day. The pill (brand name Truvada) contains two medicines (tenofovir and emtricitabine) that are used in combination with other medicines to treat HIV. When someone is exposed to HIV through sex or injection drug use, these medicines can work to keep the virus from establishing a permanent infection.
Some Important Reminders:
Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) For Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) means taking antiretroviral medicines (ART) after being potentially exposed to HIV to prevent becoming infected. PEP should be used only in emergency situations and must be started within 72 hours after a recent possible exposure to HIV. If you’re prescribed PEP, you’ll need to take it once or twice daily for 30 days. PEP is effective in preventing HIV when administered correctly, but not 100%.
