Getting PrEP 101

PrEP requires a prescription in the US 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, and is now available in the United States. Most 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 or under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

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.

PrEP FAQs

What makes you eligible for PrEP?

To take PrEP, you must be HIV-negative. This is because PrEP is for HIV prevention, not treatment, which consists of a different medication.

Your eligibility for PrEP is based on your risk of acquiring HIV due to the higher-risk behaviours you engage in. This risk score is evaluated through a tool like the HIV Incidence Risk Index (HIRI).

This eligibility can be determined by a clinician approved to prescribe PrEP in your province. Take our 1-minute HIV-risk assessment to get started now.

Is PrEP available over the counter?

No, PrEP requires a prescription from an approved medical professional in order to begin taking the medication.

Freddie provides virtual PrEP consultations for 100% free. Book a free phone appointment now.

Is PrEP free in the US?

Yes and no. PrEP is free for many US citizens, but not everyone.

The cost of PrEP in the US primarily depends on two factors:

1.

The state you live in

2.

The type of health insurance you have (private or ACA)

Most Freddie patients get PrEP for $0. We’ve worked with thousands of patients to help them find PrEP for free or as cost-affordable as possible.
