What is PrEP?
PrEP stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis. It is used in the HIV field to describe the use of anti-HIV medication by people who are not HIV+. The medication helps prevent patients from becoming infected with HIV by interfering with the virus’ ability to replicate itself after exposure. The treatment consists of taking one pill each day.
PrEP is not appropriate for everyone. It has some documented side effects, cannot be taken together with certain medications, requires pre-screening with labs including HIV screen and Hepatitis screen prior to initiation as well as ongoing labs to screen for liver and kidney health at least every 3 months.
