At Epic Pharmacy, we understand the importance of preventing and transmitting HIV. Fortunately, PrEP was approved in 2012 and stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis. It means that a medication can be taken for this purpose. PEP stands for Post-ExPosure. It means that a medication regimen can be taken if you have been exposed to HIV.
Our pharmacists and nurses are dedicated to helping patients understand prophylaxis and how to access this therapy from a physician. We will provide you with education, help you find a provider and process your prescription through your insurance plan. It’s a simple process and starts with a call to us (1-800-950-2919) and then a visit to a physician who has expertise with PrEP.
Consistently since 2012, Epic Pharmacy has been highly recommended by physicians, including Infectious Disease Specialists because of our sincere focus on patients.
