GENVOYA is a complete treatment for HIV-1. Do not take it with any other HIV-1 medicines.

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

What should I do if I take too much?

  • If you take too much GENVOYA, call your healthcare provider or go to the nearest hospital emergency room right away.

What should I do if I run out of medicine?

  • When your GENVOYA supply starts to run low, get more from your healthcare provider or pharmacy. This is very important because the amount of virus in your blood may increase if the medicine is stopped even for a short time. The virus may develop resistance to GENVOYA and become harder to treat.

Can I take antacids?

  • If you take an antacid medicine, take it at least 2 hours before or after you take GENVOYA.

What should I tell my healthcare provider before taking GENVOYA?

  • Talk to your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take. Keep a list that includes all prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements and share it with your healthcare provider and pharmacist.
  • It is important to ask your healthcare provider or pharmacist about medicines that should not be taken with GENVOYA. Do not start a new medicine without telling your healthcare provider.

What if I am pregnant or breastfeeding, or planning to become pregnant or breastfeed?

  • Tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. It is not known if GENVOYA can harm your unborn baby. Tell your healthcare provider if you become pregnant while taking GENVOYA.
  • Tell your healthcare provider if you are breastfeeding (nursing) or plan to breastfeed. Do not breastfeed. HIV-1 can be passed to the baby in breast milk.

What is GENVOYA?

GENVOYA is a 1-pill, once-a-day prescription medicine used to treat HIV-1 in people 12 years and older who 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 they meet certain requirements. These include having an undetectable viral load (less than 50 copies/mL) for 6 months or more on their current HIV-1 treatment. GENVOYA combines 4 medicines into 1 pill taken once a day with food. GENVOYA is a complete HIV-1 treatment and should not be used with other HIV-1 medicines.

GENVOYA does not cure HIV-1 infection or AIDS. To control HIV-1 infection and decrease HIV-related illnesses, you must keep taking GENVOYA. 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.
