When and How to Take It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Complera include the following:
  • Complera comes as a tablet that is taken once a day with a meal. This means that the medicine must be taken with a full, "real" meal; a protein shake does not count as a meal.
  • Try to take it at the same time every day to maintain an even level of the medication in your blood.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. It is important that you closely follow your healthcare provider's instructions for taking this medicine. Missing doses can increase the chance of the virus developing a resistance to Complera, potentially making the drug less effective.

Dosing Information

There is only one standard dose for this medication, regardless of your age or weight. As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so. Because there is only one standard dose for this medication, it is not appropriate for people who may need a lower dose of one or more of the individual components (such as people with kidney disease).

Side Effects of Complera

Just like any medicine, Complera may cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well.
If reactions do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
