Taking STRIBILD with other medicines

Keep a list of
ALL the medicines you take

STRIBILD® can affect the way other medicines work and other medicines can affect how STRIBILD works, which may cause serious side effects. Some medicines may also make the amount of STRIBILD in your body too low to help control your HIV-1, in which case the virus may become resistant to STRIBILD.

Always tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you are taking, including prescription medicines, over-the-counter medicines that you buy without a prescription, vitamins, and herbal supplements.

Do not take STRIBILD if you also take a medicine that contains:

  • Medicines to treat depression
  • Medicines to prevent organ transplant rejection
  • Medicines to treat high blood pressure
  • Any of the medicines listed in the Patient Information


What is the most important information I should know about STRIBILD®?

STRIBILD can cause serious side effects:

  • Build-up of an acid in your blood (lactic acidosis), which is a serious medical emergency. Symptoms of lactic acidosis include feeling very weak or tired, unusual (not normal) muscle pain, trouble breathing, stomach pain with nausea or vomiting, feeling cold (especially in your arms and legs), feeling dizzy or lightheaded, and/or a fast or irregular heartbeat.
  • Serious liver problems. The liver may become large (hepatomegaly) and fatty (steatosis). Symptoms of liver problems include your skin or the white part of your eyes turns yellow (jaundice), dark “tea-colored” urine, light-colored bowel movements (stools), loss of appetite for several days or longer, nausea, and/or stomach pain.
  • You may be more likely to get lactic acidosis or serious liver problems if you are female, very overweight (obese), or have been taking STRIBILD for a long time. In some cases, these serious conditions have led to death. Call your healthcare provider right away if you have any symptoms of these conditions.
  • Worsening of hepatitis B (HBV) infection. If you also have HBV and stop taking STRIBILD, your hepatitis may suddenly get worse. Do not stop taking STRIBILD without first talking to your healthcare provider, as they will need to monitor your health. STRIBILD is not approved for the treatment of HBV.


STRIBILD® is a prescription medicine used to treat HIV-1 in people 12 years and older and weigh at least 77 pounds. It can either be used in people who are starting HIV-1 treatment and have never taken HIV-1 medicines before, or people who are replacing their current HIV-1 medicines and whose healthcare provider determines that they meet certain requirements. These include having an undetectable viral load (less than 50 copies/mL of virus in their blood) for 6 months or more on their current HIV-1 treatment. STRIBILD combines 4 medicines into 1 pill to be taken once a day with food. STRIBILD is a complete single tablet regimen and should not be used with other HIV-1 medicines.

STRIBILD does not cure HIV-1 infection or AIDS. To control HIV-1 infection and decrease HIV-related illnesses, you must keep taking STRIBILD. Ask your healthcare provider if you have questions about how to reduce the risk of passing HIV-1 to others. Always practice safer sex and use condoms to lower the chance of sexual contact with body fluids. Never reuse or share needles or other items that have body fluids on them.
