TIVICAY PD can be used by infants and children

What is TIVICAY and TIVICAY PD?

TIVICAY and TIVICAY PD are prescription medicines used to treat Human Immunodeficiency Virus-1 (HIV-1) infection together with:

  • other HIV-1 medicines in adults who have not received HIV-1 medicines in the past or to replace their current HIV-1 medicines.
  • other HIV-1 medicines in children, aged at least 4 weeks and weighing at least 6.6 pounds (3 kg), who have not received HIV-1 medicines in the past or to replace their current HIV-1 medicines when their healthcare provider determines that they meet certain requirements.


TIVICAY is used together with rilpivirine as a complete regimen to treat Human Immunodeficiency Virus-1 (HIV-1) infection in adults to replace their current HIV-1 medicines when their healthcare provider determines that they meet certain requirements.


HIV-1 is the virus that causes Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).


It is not known if TIVICAY or TIVICAY PD is safe and effective in children who are less than 4 weeks of age and weigh less than 6.6 pounds (3 kg) or in children who have received certain types of medicine for HIV-1 infection.

Although very few children in the US are born with HIV-1, TIVICAY PD is a treatment option for patients who weigh at least 6.6 lb (3 kg) and are at least 4 weeks old.

TIVICAY must be taken in combination with other antiretroviral drugs.

HOW SHOULD TIVICAY PD BE TAKEN?

TIVICAY PD should be taken exactly as directed by you or your child's healthcare provider.


TIVICAY tablets are not the same as TIVICAY PD tablets and cannot be substituted for each other. Make sure you've received the correct form of TIVICAY each time you pick up you or your child's medicine.


TIVICAY PD may be swallowed whole or dissolved in drinking water. TIVICAY PD should not be chewed, cut, or crushed.


Please see the Patient Information and Instructions for Use for information on how to give TIVICAY PD.

 

If your child needs HIV-1 treatment, talk to their doctor about TIVICAY or TIVICAY PD.
