People taking PEP are likely to experience the same kind of side effects as HIV-positive people who are beginning to take HIV medication. Common side effects include diarrhoea, nausea, headaches and tiredness. As a result of these side effects, many people fail to complete the full course of PEP. In rare cases more serious side effects, such as liver damage, can occur.
