PrEP is preventative. It is NOT for taking after you are exposed to HIV. Rather, PrEP is taken daily in order to prevent HIV before you are exposed. Another medicine regimen, called PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis), can be prescribed and works if you take it within 72 hours of an exposure, so act fast. Get an appointment with one of our doctors to get PEP, or get to an ER immediately if you have been exposed and ask about PEP.
