No, there is no drug that can get rid of HIV once it’s in your body. You may have heard about something called Post Exposure Prophylaxis or PEP. This is a combination of drugs that have been used to help prevent the HIV infection if you have been exposed. You should talk to your doctor about this if have had an exposure to HIV (by having unsafe sex or sharing a needle or at work through a ‘needle stick’ in a hospital or clinical setting).
