HIV Pos and Hepatitis B
Feb 11, 2007

What medications are best for treating a coinfection of HIV and Hepatitis B? Most of HIV meds I've read about may cause liver problems. Are there any meds that are gentler on the liver and still about to fight the HIV?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Truvada is a great choice because it combines two active HBV agents into one pill and this medication is well tolerated.
