What is Symtuza?

Symtuza is an antiviral prescription medication used to treat human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). HIV is the virus that can cause acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Symtuza is used in adults and children weighing at least 88 pounds (40 kilograms). Symtuza is not a cure for HIV or AIDS.

Symtuza has sometimes been used in people who have never been treated with other medications for HIV. Symtuza can also be used to replace other HIV medications in adults with a reduced amount of the virus in their blood.

Symtuza active ingredients

Symtuza contains cobicistat, darunavir, emtricitabine, and tenofovir alafenamide. Cobicistat protects antiviral medicines from being broken down by enzymes in your liver, allowing these antiviral medicines to be more effective and safer at lower doses.

Darunavir, emtricitabine, and tenofovir are all antiviral medicines that stop HIV from replicating in your body. HIV is what can cause acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).
