First-Line HIV Medications

Since the late 1980s, more than 30 medications and drug-combination pills have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat HIV. However, not all of these meds are recommended for first-line HIV treatment.

Using the links in the list below, you can learn more about each of the drugs that are considered acceptable options as part of a first-line HIV treatment regimen, according to official U.S. treatment guidelines. (If you'd like to see a complete listing of all approved HIV medications, visit our main medications page.)
