Are there side effects?
Yes. There are some side effects, which don’t last for long. PrEP has been FDA approved and is recommended by the CDC for people at high risk for HIV. Some people experience nausea for a short period after starting PrEP. Slight loss of bone density has been seen in patients, but bone density returns to normal levels after ending PrEP. The health of people on PrEP is monitored regularly by their physicians. No serious side effects have been observed.
