PrEP and anti-depressants?

Your mental health matters! And Dr. Demetre delivers some good news – PrEP and antidepressants can work together just fine. Gilead, the drug manufacturer of Truvada (PrEP’s brand name), does not list any antidepressants as having potential interactions with PrEP.

If you have questions about combining any medications with PrEP, as always, talk with your healthcare provider.
