DOES PrEP HAVE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Some people in clinical studies of PrEP experienced upset stomach, loss of appetite, or other digestive issues, but these were mild and usually went away in one month. No serious side effects were observed, but you should tell your health care provider if these or other symptoms become severe or do not go away. While on PrEP, your provider will closely monitor any changes PrEP may have on your health.
IS PrEP COVERED BY INSURANCE?
