((sot))"if they're a nurse and get stuck accidentally and someone has hiv and they didn't tell someone until later it could be a good thing."but she hopes pep being readily avaible--isn't abused. ((sot))"i think it should only be used as a preventative measure i don't think it should be used as oh i can go do whatever i want to do." 3 ((ashley/newsroom))) trillium says it is imperative--to also rember that if you feel you have been exposed to h-i-v--you do need to follow up with a doctor immediately for the full 28 days-worth of pep 3 trillium's pharmacies
