Basically the difference between PrEP and PEP is time. Both PrEP and PEP are treatment medications to prevent HIV. PrEP is an abbreviation for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, a medicine that is taken preventing HIV before an exposure. PEP is Post-Exposure Prophylaxis which is a medicine that helps prevent HIV after an exposure. Both are very effective oral medications for protection against HIV, the human immunodeficiency virus. PrEP is a single pill/tablet that is taken every day for continued HIV protection. Like PrEP, PEP is also a single daily pill but with a different drug combination which is taken over a course of 28 days after an exposure to HIV. For further details on PrEP and PEP for HIV, please do not hesitate to contact us or you can read additional information on our HIV PEP and PrEP pages.
Please remember HIV PEP must be taken within 72 hours of a possible HIV exposure, so contact our staff at CM Mediclinic in Chiang Mai as soon as you can. We are here to help you with complete confidentially and expert care in the fight against HIV.

CM Mediclinic is one of the main suppliers of Ricovir-EM in Thailand. For several years our Medical Clinic in Chiang Mai has been able to help make HIV PEP and HIV PrEP in Thailand more easily available by supplying one of the world’s most popular, affordable and more readily available HIV antiviral drugs for use in HIV PrEP and PEP.
Ricovir-EM is a high quality generic medicine manufactured by the Global Healthcare Pharmaceutical company Mylan. Ricovir-EM has the same active ingredients as Truvada which is another popular HIV PrEP and PEP drug. Those active ingredients are Tenofovir and Emtricitabine. The main difference between the two HIV drugs is that Ricovir-EM is being used by people all over the world as a way to access HIV PrEP and PEP when Truvada is not easily available or affordable.
It is an understandable concern for people buying medication particularly online whether the drugs are counterfeit or genuine. Obviously this can be extremely dangerous and life threatening. CM Mediclinic only supply genuine drugs and are one of the largest healthcare prescribers of HIV PrEP and PEP using Ricovir-EM in Thailand.

Prevent yourself from getting shingles with Zostavax® shingles vaccinations available at CM Mediclinic. Shingles, also known as herpes zoster, is a painful nerve and skin infection which is a result of the varicella-zoster virus (VZV) that also causes chickenpox. If you have had chickenpox, the virus can stay in your body for years and in later life develop into shingles. This may happen at any time, with the risk being higher in people aged over 60. Shingles normally starts as a very painful rash on one side of the body or face. The shingles rash causes blisters which generally scab over within 7 to 10 days then clearing up in approximately 2 to 5 weeks. Certain instances of shingles can affect one of the eyes this is known as ophthalmic shingles. This happens when the virus is reactivated in part of the trigeminal nerve, a nerve which controls movement and sensation in the face. 33% percent of people will develop shingles at some stage in their life and unlike chickenpox, you can develop shingles more than once. Receiving a Zostavax® shingle vaccine will lower your chances of getting it again.
For further details please contact us. You can book your vaccination now online or call us on 0805 362362.

Following the completion of trials for a dengue vaccine which will be commercially available next year 2016 (NOW AVAILABLE, but please note Dengvaxia is only for use in people from 9 to 45 years of age who have been infected with dengue virus before and who live in areas where this infection is endemic.), we would like to list the best ways to prevent getting dengue by avoiding being bitten by an infected mosquito.
To protect yourself against dengue in Chiang Mai, particularly during rainy season:
1) Use mosquito repellent containing DEET (N-diethylmetatoluamide), although please beware that products containing DEET should not be used in children younger than two years, alternative repellents are available. 2) Wear protective, loose-fitting clothing. Mosquitoes are able to bite through tight-fitting clothes. Trousers, long-sleeved shirts and socks and shoes (not sandals) are ideal. 3) Sleep under a mosquito net to avoid being bitten at night. 4) Be aware of your environment. The Aedes mosquito which causes dengue is easily identifiable by the distinctive black and white stripes on its body. They breed in standing water in crowded urban environments. Such as toilets as well as water that gathers inside a stack of old tires or your plant pots etc. 5) Use an effective electronic mosquito trap indoors. If you are in Chiang Mai, Thailand and believe you may have symptoms of dengue fever please contact us as soon as possible for treatment.
BEWARE THE BITE. STOP DENGUE IN CHIANG MAI!
A good guide to preventing the Aedes mosquito from breeding has been published by the Singapore government which can be downloaded below:
