      HIV Prevention Pill

      There is now a pill approved to help protect you from sexually transmitted HIV Infection.

      The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of a pill to help prevent HIV infection in uninfected, high-risk people.

      This is a first.

      The drug is called Truvada. It is taken daily for pre-exposure protection or in combination with safer sex practices.

      Experts say, Truvada alone should not be used to prevent HIV infection.

      FDA-recommended safer sex practices include HIV testing every three months, strict adherence to recommended dosing and counseling.
