Taking Other Medicines

BIKTARVY is a complete treatment for HIV-1. Do not take it with any other HIV-1 medicines.
BIKTARVY can affect the way other medicines work and other medicines can affect how BIKTARVY works, which may cause serious side effects. Some medicines may also make the amount of BIKTARVY in your body too low to help keep your HIV-1 undetectable, and the virus may become resistant to BIKTARVY.
