Getting PrEP 101

PrEP requires a prescription in Canada from an approved medical professional.

Lab testing is required to ensure PrEP is right for you (most people have no side effects).

Freddie is Canada’s largest PrEP clinic. 90% of Freddie patients get PrEP for $0.

There are two types of PrEP available for prescription: Truvada & Descovy.

Descovy, the newest form of PrEP with fewer side effects, is $0 for most Freddie patients with private insurance.

PrEP 101

PrEP is a daily pill that is 99% effective at preventing the transmission of HIV.

PrEP is approved in Canada and requires a prescription. The two forms of PrEP are Truvada & Descovy.

Only 1-10% of patients on PrEP experience side effects. Most symptoms tend to go away within 1-2 weeks naturally.

PrEP only protects against HIV, not other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) like syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, or hepatitis.

The vast majority of Freddie patients get PrEP prescribed online & discreetly delivered for $0.
