One-a-Day HIV Treatments: How Do They Compare? (Infographic)

March 24, 2014

Just one pill a day to control HIV? This once-fanciful idea became a reality in 2006, when Atripla was approved as the first single-tablet HIV medication regimen in the U.S. A single-tablet regimen (STR) contains meds from different drug classes and is a complete day's HIV meds in one pill. Atripla was the sole STR for years -- until Complera came along in 2011, followed by Stribild in 2012.

There are even more STRs for HIV on the horizon; but how do the three that are already available compare to one another? Thanks to the expertise of the folks at AIDS InfoNet and at Positively Aware -- home to the tremendously informative Annual HIV Drug Guide -- there's a wealth of facts and informed opinions available on all three pills, which we've sampled here in this infographic.

This infographic is just a starter guide to learning about these meds. Another great guide is your health care provider; when considering treatment options, please consult her or him.

It would be great if this chart could be updated with Triumeq as well.

Please update your information on the food restrictions with Complera. It reads the same as the label for Stribild "Complera is to be taken with food." Thank you.
