Study drug-related, treatment emergent adverse events (all severity grades) reported in ≥5% of subjects through 144 weeks1

STRIBILD adverse events

Studies 103 and 102 also assessed the proportion of subjects who discontinued treatment with STRIBILD vs ATV + RTV + FTC/TDF and EFV/FTC/TDF, respectively.

Important Safety Information


  • Lactic acidosis and severe hepatomegaly with steatosis, including fatal cases, have been reported with the use of nucleoside analogs, including tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (tenofovir DF), a component of STRIBILD, in combination with other antiretrovirals.
  • STRIBILD is not approved for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and the safety and efficacy of STRIBILD have not been established in patients coinfected with HBV and HIV-1. Severe acute exacerbations of hepatitis B have been reported in patients who are coinfected with HBV and HIV-1 and have discontinued emtricitabine or tenofovir DF, components of STRIBILD. Hepatic function should be monitored closely with both clinical and laboratory follow-up for at least several months in patients who are coinfected with HIV-1 and HBV and discontinue STRIBILD. If appropriate, initiation of anti-hepatitis B therapy may be warranted.


STRIBILD is indicated as a complete single-tablet regimen for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in adults who are antiretroviral treatment-naive.

Warnings and precautions

  • New onset or worsening renal impairment: Cases of acute renal failure and Fanconi syndrome have been reported with the use of tenofovir DF and STRIBILD. In all patients, monitor estimated creatinine clearance (CrCl), urine glucose, and urine protein prior to initiating and during therapy. In patients with or at risk for renal impairment, additionally monitor serum phosphorus. Do not initiate STRIBILD in patients with CrCl <70 mL/min. Discontinue STRIBILD if CrCl declines to <50 mL/min. Cobicistat may cause modest increases in serum creatinine and modest declines in CrCl without affecting renal glomerular function; patients with an increase in serum creatinine >0.4 mg/dL from baseline should be closely monitored for renal safety. Avoid concurrent or recent use with a nephrotoxic agent. Cases of acute renal failure, some requiring hospitalization and renal replacement therapy, have been reported after initiation of high dose or multiple NSAIDs in patients with risk factors for renal dysfunction; consider alternatives to NSAIDs in these patients. Persistent or worsening bone pain, pain in extremities, fractures and/or muscular pain or weakness may be manifestations of proximal renal tubulopathy and should prompt an evaluation of renal function.
  • Other antiretroviral products: STRIBILD is a complete regimen for the treatment of HIV-1 infection. Do not coadminister with other antiretroviral products, including products containing any of the same active components; products containing lamivudine; products containing ritonavir; or with adefovir dipivoxil.
  • Bone effects: Decreases in bone mineral density (BMD) and mineralization defects, including osteomalacia, have been seen in patients treated with tenofovir DF. Consider monitoring BMD in patients with a history of pathologic fracture or risk factors for bone loss. In patients at risk of renal dysfunction who present with persistent or worsening bone or muscle symptoms, hypophosphatemia and osteomalacia secondary to proximal renal tubulopathy should be considered.
  • Fat redistribution and accumulation have been observed in patients receiving antiretroviral therapy.
  • Immune reconstitution syndrome, including the occurrence of autoimmune disorders with variable time to onset, has been reported.
