What happens if you miss a day of PrEP?
It is very important to take PrEP every day—it is most effective if the drug levels in your body are consistently high. If you do miss a dose, don’t panic. Take the pill as soon as you remember, unless it is already almost time to take the next dose (in that case, do not take a double dose).
Does Pep cause liver damage?

It doesn’t matter what time of day you take your PrEP pill and it’s OK if it’s not exactly the same time every day. Just be sure to take one PrEP pill every 24 hours. If you accidentally take 2 PrEP pills in one day, it’s OK. Taking 2 PrEP pills is not harmful.

Genvoya is not noted to cause weight gain in the manufacturer’s package insert. However, a large meta-analysis study suggests all integrase inhibitors such as elvitegravir (found in Genvoya) may be linked with some weight gain.
How long can you stay undetectable?
A person’s viral load is considered “durably undetectable” when all viral load test results are undetectable for at least six months after their first undetectable test result. This means that most people will need to be on treatment for 7 to 12 months to have a durably undetectable viral load.
