PrEP - Medication Overview
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) refers to the use of medications to reduce the likelihood of getting a disease prior to exposure - frequently in the setting of preventing an HIV infection. Through Push Health, people interested in PrEP can request a prescription for PrEP medications like Truvada online from a medical provider who can prescribe medication when appropriate to do so.
Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis - Medication Options
The most common PrEP medications in use to help people reduce HIV risk are Descovy and Truvada. This medication is made from the combination of different medications - emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil. Emtricitabine is also known as FTC and is marketed under the name Emtriva while tenofovir, is marketed under the brand name Viread. PrEP medications can help HIV-negative people reduce the risk of getting a permanent HIV infection by as much as 90% but they are not perfect and do not work for everyone. PrEP medications should be used as directed and have no efficacy when used to prevent other types of sexually transmitted infections.
Can I Buy PrEP Medications Online?
Because PrEP medications are prescription medications, one cannot simply buy PrEP medications online and they are not available over the counter in the United States. Instead, the first step to getting a medication for pre-exposure prophylaxis is to consult a medical provider. People in need of a PrEP prescription can use Push Health to connect with a provider who can prescribe PrEP medications when appropriate to do so.
