Customer Question

I am a kidney transplant patient on tacrolimus myfenax and prednisone. Day before yesterday had protected sex and the condom burst. I pulled out quickly and washed thoroughly. Yesterday I went to see a GP and explained what happened. He prescribed Atroiza. I'm afraid this might interfere with my transplant. Please advise whether it is safe to take this drug.

Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 month ago.

Atroiza is a three-in-one combination antiretroviral

it sounds like you and your doctors were worried about you contracting HIV.

unprotected vaginal male female intercouse without a condom with an HIV positive woman has about a 5 in 10,000 chance of you contracting HIV. so the odds are small.

Atroiza is safe to take with your kidney transplant medications.

your anxiety can cause higher blood pressure

that is not a sign of HIV.
