Once-A-Day HIV Treatment Pill Gets FDA Approval!

| Filed under: HealthScience!

Stribild Approved FDA HIV

This is good news for those out there that have HIV but struggle with taking all the medications to keep it in check.

The FDA has just approved a new pill, taken once a day, that combines two previously approved drugs plus two new ones.

It's called Stribild, and it provides a complete treatment regimen for HIV infection. It's supposed to be available by the end of the week!

The only problem is that it costs more than the other treatments, which is kind of bullshizz. Gilead, the creator of the drug, is charging wholesalers $28,500 a year for the drug, though apparently it will provide discounts to state assistance programs and has created a patient financial-assistance program.

This is not much more effective than the multi-pill regimen, but only having to take one pill instead of many is the main draw.

It's too bad about the price, though!
