I went into a testing center a 5 days ago for HIV/STD

Customer Question
Hello, I went into...

Hello, I went into a testing center a 5 days ago for HIV/STD testing after having improtective sex. They asked me if I wanted Pep (Stribild) which I said sure. After multiple testing my results all came back negative. I asked the phone rep who gave me the results do she think I should still take the pills for the side affects of the pills have been getting worst. She said yes for 10 days and was quick to get off the phone. Every time I take a pill every day I fell worse and worse. Today I woke up feeling horrible. I know it’s the pills for I feel great until I take them. They are giving me the run around saying I have to come back to clicnic to get a suggestion if I should continue . I’m currently out of town. Should I continue if all test results came back negative?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Although I have been recently proven negative, they have me taking Stribild daily before I got my results.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing. No allergies and I’m a healthy 28 year old. I do suffer from minor acids reflux Okay

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
