Anti-Viral Shot?
Dec 14, 2010

I do not like taking meds, and sometimes I forget. So, just out of curiosity, are there any anti-viral shots available out there? Maybe taking a shot every month, rather than a pill everyday? If not, is that being considered as a topic for research?

Response from Dr. Henry

The only HIV med currently available that is injected is Fuzeon (injected twice daiy). There are no once monthly injections HIV meds currently in the pipeline to my knowledge so for the foreseeable future HIV treatment will rely on oral medications. KH
