Customer Question

I had unprotected vaginal sex 8 days ago. We had sex 3 times but there was no ejaculation. I was put on Triumeq seven days ago for Pep but was not tested for the hypersensitivity gene. I want to stop the medication as I am afraid of getting a fatal reaction but I don't want to be HIV positive..please help.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

We never use Triumeq as PEP due to the risk of hypersensitivity associated with abacavir.

Hence you can stop Triumeq and switch to a safer combination.

We prefer Truvada and dolutagravir for 28 day regimen.

Since you already completed 7 days, you can take for 21 days.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
