|Switching from kaletra/truvada to stribild
Jan 26, 2014
STRIBILD is a prescription medicine used as a complete single-tablet regimen to treat HIV-1 in adults who have never taken HIV-1 medicines before.
Should I be concerned since I've taken HIV medications before?
| Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thank you for posting.
The "never taken HIV medications" clause is mostly an artifact of how HIV medications are approved by the FDA. If the Truvada+Kaletra regimen is your first, and there's no concern about drug resistance, then any medication regimen approved for such treatment-naive situations would still totally apply.
So, no. If this is your situation, I wouldn't be concerned.
Be well, BY
