|How Many Pills Per Day???
Apr 9, 2005
How many pills per day does the average HIV Poz individual on HAART have to take? I often hear people say between 20-30 pills/day and am just curious of the 'average' number. Please advise.

Thank you for your question.
In the past, HIV+ persons might have to take very complex drug regimens of upwards of 20 pills a day. Contemporary drug regimens typically are less than 7 pills per day and can be as low as 2 pills taken once daily. BY
