What is HIV treatment and how does it work?

HIV treatment involves the use of anti-viral medications that are used to reduce the amount of virus in the blood. This limits how quickly the virus can multiply in your body and then reduces symptoms, chances of transmitting the virus (see also HIV PrEP) and can prolong an HIV positive person’s life.

Do you need a prescription for HIV treatment?

HIV medications should only be given by a qualified, registered healthcare provider that is trained in the treatment of HIV and can advise you on how to take it and how to manage any side effects.

How effective is HIV treatment?

HIV treatment can be extremely successful in reducing HIV symptoms, the chances of transmitting it (see HIV PrEP) and prolonging your life. It is very important that you take it as your healthcare provider prescribed otherwise the virus can mutate. This causes treatment resistance and makes the treatment you used to be taking ineffective. It also means you can transmit the mutated virus.

How should HIV treatment be taken?

HIV treatment is usually given as a combination of different medicines in a tablet or tablets. How and when it should be taken depends on the specific combination you are prescribed by your healthcare provider.

What are the side effects of HIV treatment?

Some people might not have any symptoms while a few will have severe symptoms. Most will only have mild symptoms like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, tiredness and sleeplessness that last a few days or weeks. It will depend on what combination of treatment you are prescribed.
