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.
