"Nov. 27, 2012 -- Every month, 1,000 more young Americans ages 13 to 24 get an incurable infection that's deadly unless held at bay by daily doses of costly drugs -- and many of them don't even know it.
That infection is HIV, the virus"...
STRIBILD® is indicated as a complete regimen for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in adults who are antiretroviral treatment-na´ve.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
The recommended dosage of STRIBILD is one tablet taken orally once daily with food [see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY].
Dosage Adjustment in Patients with Renal Impairment
Initiation of STRIBILD in patients with estimated creatinine clearance below 70 mL per minute is not recommended. Because STRIBILD is a fixed-dose combination tablet, STRIBILD should be discontinued if estimated creatinine clearance declines below 50 mL per min during treatment with STRIBILD as dose interval adjustment required for emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (DF) cannot be achieved [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS, ADVERSE REACTIONS, Use In Specific Populations, CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY, and Clinical Studies].
Dosage in Patients with Hepatic Impairment
No dosage adjustment of STRIBILD is required in patients with mild (Child-Pugh Class A) or moderate (Child-Pugh Class B) hepatic impairment. No pharmacokinetic or safety data are available regarding the use of STRIBILD in patients with severe hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh Class C). Therefore, STRIBILD is not recommended for use in patients with severe hepatic impairment [see Use In Specific Populations and CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY].
Testing Prior to Initiation of STRIBILD
Prior to initiation of STRIBILD, patients should be tested for hepatitis B infection [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS] and estimated creatinine clearance, urine glucose and urine protein should be documented in all patients [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
