PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a prescription medicine used to reduce the risk of contracting HIV in HIV-negative persons who are at a greater risk of contracting the virus.
The two ingredients of PrEP (Tenofovir and Emtricitabine) inhibit an enzyme needed by HIV to develop and replicate. As a result, the chances of becoming infected are greatly reduced.
If taken daily, PrEP can reduce the transmission of HIV via sex by 90%. Please note that PrEP is not a form of contraception and does not protect against other unwanted sexually transmitted diseases. Condoms should be used each and every time you have sex while using PrEP.
While PrEP can reduce the risk of contracting the virus, it does not treat those who are already HIV-positive. Before using this medicine, it is important to know your HIV status by taking an HIV blood test. Be aware that a recent infection of HIV may take several weeks before it is detectable.
PrEP should be taken once daily to reduce the risk of contracting HIV.
Take one pill at the same time every day with a glass of water. If you have trouble swallowing tablets, you can crush the tablet and mix it with 100ml of water or juice and drink immediately.
This medicine is more effective after 7 days of consecutive daily use.
Missing a dose of PrEP can increase your risk of contracting HIV.
All medications carry the risk of side effects. Always read the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medication. Only take the medicine as prescribed.
Common side effects include:
PrEP is not a form of contraception. Always practise safe sex while taking PrEP by using condoms each and every time you have sex.
If you experience dizziness as a result of taking PrEP, avoid driving or using machinery until you feel safe to do so.
If you are pregnant, suspect you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant, or breastfeeding, speak to your doctor before taking this medication.
Women taking PrEP should use contraception to avoid pregnancy.
