Apretude Workshop: Pill-free PrEP
Oak Lawn Pharmacy recently hosted an event to introduce a groundbreaking new form of PrEP medication: Apretude. Apretude is a pill-free injection that provides protection against HIV transmission. This medication is a game-changer for those who find it difficult to adhere to daily pill regimens or experience adverse side effects from oral PrEP.
Apretude is a long-acting injectable medication that works by releasing the active ingredients over a period of time, providing protection against HIV transmission for up to 8 weeks. The injection contains two active ingredients, cabotegravir, and rilpivirine, which are also found in oral medication, but with Apretude, they are delivered directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system.
The introduction of Apretude is a significant step forward in HIV prevention, particularly for individuals who find it challenging to adhere to daily oral PrEP regimens. With Apretude, patients only need an injection every eight weeks rather than taking a pill daily. This ease of use can significantly improve medication adherence...more
