Dear Doctor: What can you tell me about the new monthly HIV treatment that was recently approved? Dear Reader: You’re referring to a monthly injectable HIV treatment that was just given the green light by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. They go from having to remember to take their medication 365 times per year to receiving the treatment monthly. The goal is to prep the body for a smooth transition to the injectable drug. The therapy, which is eligible for insurance coverage, cannot be administered at home and requires monthly clinic visits.
