PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) means taking antiretroviral medicines (ART) after being potentially exposed to HIV to prevent becoming infected.
PEP should be used only in emergency situations and must be started within 72 hours after a recent possible exposure to HIV. If you think you’ve recently been exposed to HIV during sex or through sharing needles and works to prepare drugs or if you’ve been sexually assaulted, talk to your health care provider or an emergency room doctor about PEP right away.
Due to the time sensitivity of PEP usage, you must visit a sexual health doctor within 72 hours of exposure and begin PEP usage to manage the risks of infection. Alternatively , we offer advance PEP purchase with prescription and test results for HIV, Hep C, Syphilis, Liver and Kidney function tests from your doctor,
As we do not advise client to rely on PEP with risky sexual exposures, only 1 mionth supply of PEP combination is allowed per order. These PEP are for future emergency uses and not effective if used after 72 hours HIV exposure. We are unable to support PEP in time for use within 72 hours of exposure, please see a doctor in such circumstances.

B) Stribild (More costly but effective against more resistant HIV strains)
Possible side effects include diarrhoea, headaches,nausea/vomiting and fatigue. However these are usually mild and generally only last a few days with no long-term side effects. For what PEP to be prescribed, please consult your local doctor for advise, blood tests and prescription.
