Question

Can Volutrip be used as PEP?

Is volutrip used to prevent HIV infection after exposure?

Answer

Thanks for getting in touch.

Volutrip is a generic version of an ARV combination called TLD, please see here:

In the UK PEP uses a similar combination, but using raltegravir instead of dolutegravir. This is mainly due to differences in the price of different drugs.

In theory, TLD could be used as PEP, but a doctor needs to prescribe this for you.

PEP should never be used without taking an HIV test first.
