People who started PEP while overseas may have been prescribed antiretroviral drugs which are not recommended in Australia. Frequently, they may not have had all recommended baseline tests as recommended in Table 4.
All baseline tests recommended in this guideline should be completed as soon as possible.
If not originally prescribed, the person should transition to one of the recommended Australian PEP regimens (See Figure 1).
This recommended regimen change may cause anxiety and should be carefully explained, and the patient reassured.
