Rilpivirine Hcl
Rilpivirine is an antiviral medicine that prevents human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) from multiplying in your body. HIV is the virus that can cause acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Rilpivirine is used in combination with other antiviral medicines to treat HIV. Rilpivirine is for use in adults and children at least 12 years old who weigh at least 77 pounds (35 kilograms) who have never before taken an HIV medicine and who have an amount of HIV-1 in their blood (this is called 'viral load') that is no more than 100,000 copies/mL. Rilpivirine is sometimes used with a medicine called cabotegravir as a daily "lead-in dose" to help determine that you can safely use a combination form of these medicines given as a monthly injection. Rilpivirine and cabotegravir may also be given short-term in place of the monthly injectable combination for up to 2 months. When used with cabotegravir for these purposes, rilpivirine is only for adults with HIV who have already used other antiviral medicines that have controlled their viral load. Rilpivirine may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
