What permanent damage can a 28 day PEP course of Tenofovir (+ Fumarate + Emtricitabine) do to one's body? Also, how effective would the said combination of drugs be in preventing HIV after 68 hours?

What permanent damage can a 28 day PEP course of Tenofovir (+ Fumarate + Emtricitabine) do to one's body? Also, how effective would the said combination of drugs be in preventing HIV after 68 hours?

Damage is unlikely: It is most effective when started within 72 hours. Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea are the most likely short-term side effects. Long-term side effects are not expected. Tenofovir may strain the kidneys or liver - usually in those with kidney disease or hepatitis already - but permanent damage is rare. The risks of long-term organ damage are much more likely from the HIV virus than from this drug ...Read more

Good dose of iron: This is a good dose for getting maximum benefit. It is essential that your body is low in Iron as shown on blood testing for Iron stores. Once your Hemoglobin (Hb) goes up, the dose of Iron pills can be reduced to 1 tab twice a day. But either dose is fine.

Which is better? L- carnitine or acetyl L-carnitine or n-acetyl carnitine? In details please I'm a medical student so I can understand your answer

Do different things: It's hard to say one is better than the other as they do different things. L-carnitine is necessary for fatty acids to cross the mitochondrial membrane & is esp. Good for the heart. Acetyl-l-carnitine crosses into the brain & is neuro-protective. N-acetyl carnitine may be better absorbed than l-carnitine. They don't give us space here for more details but I will provide links to more info in comment:. ...Read more
