Truvada for PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a medication that is prescribed to help reduce the risk of contracting HIV-1 through sex when used in combination with safer sex practices and used daily. This use of Truvada for PrEP is only for those who are HIV-negative, weigh at least 77 pounds, and are at risk of getting HIV-1. Talk openly with your healthcare provider about your sexual health to help determine your risk of getting HIV-1 and to reduce your risk. If you already have HIV-1 or do not know your HIV-1 status do NOT take Truvada for PrEP.

Read any information for patients when you start Truvada for PrEP or whenever you get a refill. Truvada PrEP is taken orally, once per day or as directed by your doctor. Ensure that you have been tested and received results indicating that you do not already have HIV-1 before you start taking this medication. You should get tested for HIV-1 at least once every 3 months while you are on Truvada. To practice safer sex you should always know your HIV status and the HIV status of your partners, and use latex or polyurethane condoms and lubricant. Ensure you are also getting tested for other sexually transmitted infections as having other infections makes it easier for HIV to infect you.

Many HIV-1 tests have the potential of missing HIV-1 infection in someone who has recently become infected. Symptoms of a new HIV-1 infection can include: fever, tiredness, headache, joint or muscle ache, sore throat, diarrhea, night sweats, vomiting, rash, as well as enlarged lymph nodes in the groin or neck. If you have a flu –like illness while taking or within the last month before starting Truvada talk to your doctor.

If you become HIV-1 positive you will need more medication than Truvada alone to treat HIV-1. If you take only Truvada for PrEP when you have HIV-1 your infection may become harder to treat now and moving forward.

Some medications, when taken together, can interact in ways which cause new or higher risk of negative side effects. Always share a list of all medications with your doctor so that they can accurately monitor drug interactions. Some drugs should never be taken together, and some drug interactions can be mitigated by changing the dosage of one or both medications. Your doctor will have more information about drug interactions so give them a list including prescription, non-prescription and vitamin/herbal products.
