What should I tell my doctor before taking Stribild?

Before taking Stribild (elvitegravir, cobicistat, emtricitabine and tenofovir), a prescription medicine used to treat human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1), you should give your doctor a complete medical history. Be sure to tell him or her if you:
  • have any kidney problems
  • have any bone problems
  • have liver problems, such as a hepatitis B infection
  • think you are pregnant or want to become pregnant
  • have any other medical conditions
You should also tell your doctor about all of your other medications (prescription or over-the-counter), as well as any supplements you take.
