PrEP and covid-19

Unread postby betonhaus » 10 May 2021, 18:12

Hey I was wondering if being on prep, eg PMS-Emtricitabine/Tenofovir, would have any effect on catching and/or fighting off covid-19? And would it react with the Pfitzer or Moderna vaccines?

AFAIK, at least one PrEP combination medicine is or was being studied for possibly preventing Covid-19. I haven't looked into this in a long time so don't know if any results have come out, but it doesn't seem ridiculous to suggest that antiviral agents effective against one virus might also be effective against another, and apparently researchers thought it was plausible enough to research. You might like to look into this further.

I highly doubt there's any interaction with vaccines.
