Answer

Regimens include the following:

  • Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate with emtricitabine (TDF/FTC co-formulated) or tenofovir disoproxil fumarate with lamivudine (3TC) once daily (use with caution in renal insufficiency) or
  • Abacavir with lamivudine (ABC/3TC) once daily (only if HLA-B5701–negative); avoid combination with ritonavir-boosted atazanavir if the pretreatment HIV viral load exceeds 100,000 copies/mL. [7]
