Do I need to take HIV medications every day?

Standard antiretroviral treatment requires taking pills each day. Some studies have found that taking meds just four or five days a week can maintain viral suppression as well as daily pills. Some people who have trouble taking daily pills may be able to switch to Cabenuva, a long-acting injectable regimen. Trogarzo involves IV infusions every two weeks, but it is indicated only for people with highly resistant HIV, and it must be used in addition to daily pills. Broadly neutralizing antibodies against HIV may also have the potential to be used in long-acting combination regimens for HIV treatment and prevention.
