Umm...how about every 6 months to once a year? A once a month injection really won’t cut it...adherence. I’d adhere to swallowing a pill once a day, in the morning with my vitamins, rather than having to go to a clinic for a monthly shot. Birth control implants are 6 months to a year...why not HIV meds?

To: SINCE 1995, Why would someone schedule their vacation knowing they need their injection at that time? And as the medication is also available in pill form a 30 day supply would be easy to keep at hand. As for a disaster happening on the exact day well...you could also win the lottery then get struck by lightening then see Lady Gaga driving by...it could happen but. Hope it proves safe and effective.

I think it’s good in that it provides another treatment option. I am concerned about the issue of medication adherence.

HIV Since 1995

I see vacations and emergencies as potiential disaster zones. If a person is taking a 2-week vacation and their monthly clinic visit for the injection falls right in the middle of that 2-week trip - it's very likely the person will miss that visit. There is no way to stock up for an emergency. Every single emergency preparedness announcement says to bring "all medications" with you if you are forced to evacuate. Even hospital pharmacies don't carry most HIV meds. This is not a good idea.
