Why Does My PrEP Look Different?

Currently PrEP is available as a generic version of the drug Truvada.

Each manufacturer will create a pill which may look a little different however all of the generic forms of Truvada contain the same active ingredients Tenofivir and Emtricitabine, the medication that protects against HIV infection that makes PrEP work.

UK studies have shown the generic medications to be equal to the original Truvada brand.

If you are receiving your PrEP from your Australian pharmacy or via any of the following online pharmacies you can feel reassured that your PrEP is geunine and effective.

Of course if you have any questions about PrEP be sure to talk to an experienced PrEP doctor in your local area. If you are in Melbourne I am happy to chat.
