The side effects from PrEP are generally very mild and usually settle within a week or two.

Sometimes changing the time of day you take your PrEP will help, taking the dose in the evening instead of the morning or vice versa.

Some people find that side effects change depending on whether they took their PrEP with food or not.

It’s worth trying out these simple tips first.

If your side effects persist and are worrying you, visit your local clinic (or your trial centre if you’re on the IMPACT trial) to discuss this with a nurse or a doctor.
