Testing Prior to Initiation and During Treatment with COMPLERA

Prior to or when initiating COMPLERA, test patients for hepatitis B virus infection [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].

Prior to initiation of COMPLERA, and during treatment with COMPLERA, on a clinically appropriate schedule, assess serum creatinine, estimated creatinine clearance, urine glucose and urine protein in all patients. In patients with chronic kidney disease, also assess serum phosphorus [see Warnings and Precautions (5.5)].

Recommended Dosage

COMPLERA is a three-drug fixed dose combination product containing 200 mg of emtricitabine (FTC), 25 mg of rilpivirine (RPV), and 300 mg of tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF). The recommended dosage of COMPLERA in adult and pediatric patients weighing at least 35 kg is one tablet taken orally once daily with food [see Use in Specific Populations (8.4) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].

Recommended Dosage During Pregnancy

For pregnant patients who are already on COMPLERA prior to pregnancy and are virologically suppressed (HIV-1 RNA less than 50 copies per mL), one tablet of COMPLERA taken once daily may be continued. Lower exposures of rilpivirine, a component of COMPLERA, were observed during pregnancy, therefore viral load should be monitored closely [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].

Not Recommended in Patients with Moderate or Severe Renal Impairment

COMPLERA is not recommended in patients with moderate or severe renal impairment (estimated creatinine clearance below 50 mL per minute) [see Warnings and Precautions (5.5) and Use in Specific Populations (8.6)].

Recommended Dosage with Rifabutin Coadministration

If COMPLERA is coadministered with rifabutin, take an additional 25 mg tablet of rilpivirine (Edurant) with COMPLERA once daily with a meal for the duration of the rifabutin coadministration [see Drug Interactions (7.6) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].
