What is PEP?

PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) means taking medicine to prevent HIV after a possible exposure.

PEP stands for post-exposure prophylaxis. This is a treatment that can stop an HIV infection after the virus has entered a person’s body. It must be taken as soon as possible after exposure but within 72 hours.

How does PEP stop HIV transmission?

PEP contains some of the same medicines that people with HIV take to stay healthy. PEP is the short-term use of antiretrovirals (ARVs). If you are exposed to HIV, it takes a few days for an HIV infection to take hold in your body. As soon as you start PEP, these medicines begin to stop the virus from multiplying. As you continue taking PEP for the full 28-days, cells with HIV die and the virus stops spreading to the rest of your body.

How do I know if I need PEP treatment?

PEP should be taken as soon as possible.

PEP may be prescribed for people who are HIV negative or do not know their HIV status, and who in the last 72 hours:

  • May have been exposed to HIV during sex
  • Shared needles or other equipment (works) to inject drugs
  • Were sexually assaulted
  • May have been exposed to HIV at work

If you think you were recently exposed to HIV, talk to your health care provider or an emergency room doctor about PEP right away.

How to take PEP?

PEP must be taken exactly as instructed and for 28 days.

  • Do not skip a dose or fail to complete the full month as this makes it less likely to work.
  • Do not double a dose if you miss one.
  • If you do miss a dose and you remember in less than 24 hours, take the next one as soon as you remember.
  • If you miss more than 48 hours of PEP it will be discontinued.

Note: You should avoid drinking alcohol during PEP treatment time. Antacids (containing aluminium, magnesium or calcium), multivitamins and iron supplements should be avoided while on dolutegravir once daily.

Is PEP safe? What are the side effects?

PEP is safe. Emergency PEP has been used for many years to stop HIV in people who were accidentally exposed while at work.

PEP can cause mild side effects, including upset stomach and headaches, especially at the beginning of treatment. These symptoms often get better or go away after the first week of taking PEP.

How well does PEP work?

Doctor Thắng said: ”In my experience, PEP reduced the rate of infection by 99%. However, PEP is not 100% effective, but if you take PEP immediately after an exposure and for the full 28 days, it often prevents HIV infection”.
