Introduction

Raltegravir (generic for Isentress) is used for HIV post-exposure prophylaxis. The decision to start post-exposure prophylaxis after a possible exposure to HIV is complex, and the standard of care is to initiate post-exposure prophylaxis medication only after laboratory testing. Seeking immediate medical attention is the best option. However, in an emergency or disaster situation in which medical care is unavailable, take this medication, along with emtricitabine/tenofovir, as soon as possible (and within 72 hours) to prevent infection if you believe you have suffered a major exposure to HIV. Immediately seek qualified medical care.

When to avoid

Do not take to prevent infections other than HIV. Do not take as pre-exposure prophylaxis.

When is it dangerous

Do not stop taking this medication once you start without consulting a medical provider.

When is it used

HIV post-exposure prophylaxis emtricitabine 200 mg by mouth once a day PLUS tenofovir 300 mg by mouth once a day PLUS raltegravir 400 mg by mouth twice a day
