Question

Is Rizene used as PrEP?

Can I use rizene for PrEP as it contains the 2 drugs of truvada?

Answer

Thanks for getting in touch.

Rizene is a generic version of an ARV called Atripla, please see here: https://i-base.info/guides/1561

Though Rizene contains the components that are used in PrEP medication, namely FTC and Tenofovir DF, it isn’t used as PrEP, at least not in the UK where i-base are based.

Depending on where you live, you should be able to access PrEP, be this privately or through a clinic.
