IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

BOXED WARNING: RISK OF DRUG RESISTANCE WITH USE OF TRUVADA FOR PRE-EXPOSURE PROPHYLAXIS (PrEP) IN

UNDIAGNOSED EARLY HIV-1 INFECTION and POST TREATMENT ACUTE EXACERBATION OF HEPATITIS B

 TRUVADA for PrEP must only be prescribed to individuals confirmed to be HIV-negative immediately prior to initiating and periodically (at least

every 3 months) during use. Drug-resistant HIV-1 variants have been identified with use of TRUVADA for PrEP following undetected acute HIV-1

infection. Do not initiate TRUVADA for PrEP if signs or symptoms of acute HIV-1 infection are present unless negative infection status is

confirmed.

 TRUVADA is not approved for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and the safety and efficacy of TRUVADA have not been

established in patients infected with HBV. Severe acute exacerbations of hepatitis B have been reported in patients coinfected with HBV and

HIV-1 who have discontinued TRUVADA. Hepatic function should be monitored closely with both clinical and laboratory follow-up for at least

several months in patients who are infected with HBV and discontinue TRUVADA. If appropriate, initiation of anti-hepatitis B therapy may be

warranted.

To learn more about TRUVADA for PrEP, please see indication, prescribing considerations, and important safety information on the following pages and the

accompanying full Prescribing Information, including BOXED WARNING.

INDICATION:

TRUVADA for PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is indicated in combination with safer sex practices to reduce the risk of sexually acquired HIV-1 in

adults at high risk.

 Individuals at high risk for sexually acquired HIV-1 include:

 Individuals with HIV-1 infected partner(s).

 Individuals who engage in sexual activity in a high prevalence area or social network and have one or more of the following: inconsistent or

no condom use, diagnosis of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), exchange of sex for commodities (money, food, shelter, drugs), use

of illicit drugs or alcohol dependence, incarceration, and/or sexual partners of unknown HIV status with any of the above risk factors.

 Prescribing considerations:

 TRUVADA for PrEP must only be prescribed as part of a comprehensive prevention strategy because TRUVADA is not always effective

in preventing the acquisition of HIV-1 infection.

 Uninfected individuals must strictly adhere to their dosing schedule because the effectiveness of TRUVADA in reducing the risk of

acquiring HIV-1 is strongly correlated with adherence.

 HIV-1 negative status must be confirmed prior to initiating TRUVADA for PrEP and at least every 3 months thereafter.

 If clinical symptoms of acute HIV-1 infection are present and recent exposures (<1 month) are suspected, delay initiating TRUVADA

for PrEP for at least 1 month until negative HIV-1 status is reconfirmed.

 Alternatively, negative HIV-1 status can be confirmed with a test approved by the FDA to aid diagnosis of acute or primary HIV-1

infection.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

BOXED WARNING: RISK OF DRUG RESISTANCE WITH USE OF TRUVADA FOR PRE-EXPOSURE PROPHYLAXIS (PrEP) IN

UNDIAGNOSED EARLY HIV-1 INFECTION and POST TREATMENT ACUTE EXACERBATION OF HEPATITIS B

 TRUVADA for PrEP must only be prescribed to individuals confirmed to be HIV-negative immediately prior to initiating and periodically (at

least every 3 months) during use. Drug-resistant HIV-1 variants have been identified with use of TRUVADA for PrEP following undetected

acute HIV-1 infection. Do not initiate TRUVADA for PrEP if signs or symptoms of acute HIV-1 infection are present unless negative infection

status is confirmed.

 TRUVADA is not approved for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and the safety and efficacy of TRUVADA have not

been established in patients infected with HBV. Severe acute exacerbations of hepatitis B have been reported in patients coinfected with

HBV and HIV-1 who have discontinued TRUVADA. Hepatic function should be monitored closely with both clinical and laboratory follow-up

for at least several months in patients who are infected with HBV and discontinue TRUVADA. If appropriate, initiation of anti-hepatitis B

therapy may be warranted.

CONTRAINDICATIONS:

 Do not use TRUVADA for PrEP in individuals with unknown or positive HIV status.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS:

 New onset or worsening renal impairment: Cases of acute renal impairment and Fanconi syndrome have been reported with the use of

tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (DF). In all patients, assess estimated creatinine clearance (CrCl) prior to initiating and during therapy. In patients

at risk for renal dysfunction, additionally monitor serum phosphorus, urine glucose, and urine protein. Avoid concurrent or recent use with a

nephrotoxic agent. Cases of acute renal failure have been reported after initiation of high dose or multiple NSAIDs in patients at risk for renal

dysfunction; consider alternatives to NSAIDs in these patients.

 Do not use TRUVADA for PrEP in individuals with CrCl <60 mL/min. Reassess potential risks and benefits of using TRUVADA for PrEP if a

decrease in CrCl is observed during use.

 Lactic acidosis and severe hepatomegaly with steatosis: Fatal cases have been reported with the use of nucleoside analogs, including

TRUVADA. Discontinue TRUVADA for PrEP if clinical or laboratory findings suggestive of lactic acidosis or pronounced hepatotoxicity develop,

including hepatomegaly and steatosis in the absence of marked transaminase elevations.

 Use with other antiviral products: Do not coadminister with products containing emtricitabine, tenofovir alafenamide, tenofovir DF,

lamivudine, or adefovir dipivoxil

 Bone effects: Decreases in bone mineral density (BMD) and mineralization defects, including osteomalacia, have been seen in patients

treated with tenofovir DF. In clinical trials conducted in pediatric subjects, the total body BMD gain was less in tenofovir DF treated subjects as

compared to the control group. Consider monitoring BMD in patients with a history of pathologic fracture or risk factors for bone loss.

Please see accompanying full Prescribing Information, including BOXED WARNING.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION (CONT’D)

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS: RISK REDUCTION STRATEGIES:

 Reduce exposure to HIV-1 infection: TRUVADA for PrEP is not always effective in preventing the acquisition of HIV-1. Therefore, use only

as part of a comprehensive prevention strategy that includes safer sex practices, regular testing for HIV-1 and other sexually transmitted

infections, and counseling on reducing sexual risk behaviors.

 Reduce potential for drug resistance: TRUVADA for PrEP should only be used in individuals confirmed to be HIV negative. HIV-1

resistance substitutions may emerge in individuals with undetected HIV-1 infection who are taking only TRUVADA. TRUVADA alone is not a

complete regimen for treating HIV-1.

 Confirm HIV-negative status immediately prior to initiation.

 Many HIV tests are antibody tests and may not detect acute HIV infection. Delay initiating (≥1 month) or discontinue TRUVADA for

PrEP if current or recent symptoms of acute HIV infection are present (e.g., fever, fatigue, myalgia, skin rash) and recent exposures are

suspected. Prior to initiating or continuing TRUVADA for PrEP, reconfirm HIV-negative status with a test approved by the FDA for the

diagnosis of acute HIV infection.

 Counsel on adherence: Counsel individuals to strictly adhere to their dosing schedule. The effectiveness of TRUVADA for PrEP in reducing

the risk of acquiring HIV-1 is strongly correlated with adherence.

ADVERSE REACTIONS:

 Common adverse reactions (>2% and more frequently than placebo) of TRUVADA for PrEP in clinical trials were headache, abdominal

pain, and weight decreased.

DRUG INTERACTIONS:

 Hepatitis C antivirals: Coadministration with ledipasvir/sofosbuvir or velpatasvir/sofosbuvir increases tenofovir DF exposure; monitor for

adverse reactions.

 Drugs affecting renal function: Coadministration of TRUVADA with drugs that reduce renal function or compete for active tubular secretion

may increase concentrations of emtricitabine and/or tenofovir.

USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS:

 Pregnancy Category B: There are no adequate and well-controlled trials in pregnant women. Use during pregnancy only if clearly needed.

In uninfected women who become pregnant while taking TRUVADA for PrEP, careful consideration about continuing TRUVADA should be

given, taking into account the potential increased risk of HIV-1 infection during pregnancy. An Antiretroviral Pregnancy Registry has been

established; healthcare providers are encouraged to register patients by calling 1-800-258-4263.

 Breastfeeding: Emtricitabine and tenofovir have been detected in human milk. Mothers taking TRUVADA for PrEP should be instructed not

to breastfeed because the potential for adverse reactions in nursing infants is not known and to avoid HIV-1 transmission to the infant if HIV-

1 infection is acquired.

 Pediatrics: TRUVADA for PrEP is based on studies in adults.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION:

 Adult dosage: One tablet once daily with or without food.

 Renal impairment: Do not use in individuals with CrCl <60 mL/min.

 Testing prior to initiation: Test for HIV-1 and HBV infection.
