Regardless of your financial situation or whether or not you have insurance, we can offer PrEP® medication (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) for free and you can leave our office with the prescription in hand. We respect your privacy and want to offer complete discretion, which is why we added an in house pharmacy that stays stocked with the medication needed for all of our patient needs.

One pill per day
- PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is most effective if taken daily.
- Before starting PrEP, you will get tested for HIV, STDs, kidney function, and hepatitis B and C.
- You will also get tested for HIV and STDs every 3 months and a kidney function test every 6 months.
Getting into a routine
- Try to take a pill at the same time each day.
- Consider taking a pill with you if you will be out late.
- Set a calendar or text message reminder.
Missed a dose
- Just take it when you remember. For example: If you usually take it in the AM, but realize at 10PM that you forgot it’s okay to take 1 pill then continue with your usual schedule the next day (don’t take 2 pills at once).
Possible side effects
- Some people have gas, nausea, or headache. These symptoms go away within the first month.
- PrEP can cause small changes in kidney and bone mineral density, which return to normal once PrEP is stopped.
- If you are having trouble paying for PrEP, Curative Care Center offers an assistance program to cover the cost.
Filling your prescription
- Refills are not always automatic. Contact your pharmacy when you have 5 pills left so you don’t run out.
- Before traveling, let us know that you may need an extra refill if you are low on medication.
