Getting help paying for COMPLERA

If you’re concerned about how you will pay for your treatment, start by talking to your healthcare provider. He or she may be able to help you apply for assistance. Gilead offers and supports several programs that could help.

Be sure to check with your insurance company, as most HIV-1 treatments are covered

The Gilead Co-pay Coupon Card

The Gilead Co-pay Coupon Card may help eligible patients save on COMPLERA co-pay. It is not available for patients who are enrolled in any state- or federally-funded prescription drug program, such as Medicare Part D and Medicaid. Patients in the Medicare Part D prescription coverage gap (the “donut hole”) do not qualify. For more information, and to see if you are eligible, see the full terms and conditions at or call 1-877-505-6986.*

*Enrollees will have to answer a few questions to confirm eligibility. The program is subject to change at any time.

What is the most important information I should know about COMPLERA?

COMPLERA can cause serious side effects:

  • Build-up of an acid in your blood (lactic acidosis), which is a serious medical emergency. Symptoms of lactic acidosis include feeling very weak or tired, unusual (not normal) muscle pain, trouble breathing, stomach pain with nausea or vomiting, feeling cold especially in your arms and legs, feeling dizzy or lightheaded, and/or a fast or irregular heartbeat.
  • Serious liver problems. The liver may become large (hepatomegaly) and fatty (steatosis). Symptoms of liver problems include your skin or the white part of your eyes turns yellow (jaundice), dark “tea-colored” urine, light-colored bowel movements (stools), loss of appetite for several days or longer, nausea, and/or stomach pain.
  • You may be more likely to get lactic acidosis or serious liver problems if you are female, very overweight (obese), or have been taking COMPLERA for a long time. In some cases, these serious conditions have led to death. Call your healthcare provider right away if you have any symptoms of these conditions.
  • Worsening of hepatitis B (HBV) infection. If you also have HBV and stop taking COMPLERA, your hepatitis may suddenly get worse. Do not stop taking COMPLERA without first talking to your healthcare provider, as they will need to monitor your health. COMPLERA is not approved for the treatment of HBV.


COMPLERA is a prescription medicine used to treat HIV-1 in adults who have never taken HIV-1 medicines before and who have no more than 100,000 copies/mL of virus in their blood (this is called ‘viral load’). COMPLERA can also replace current HIV-1 medicines for some adults who have an undetectable viral load (less than 50 copies/mL) and whose healthcare provider determines that they meet certain other requirements. COMPLERA combines 3 medicines into 1 pill to be taken once a day with food. COMPLERA is a complete single tablet regimen and should not be used with other HIV-1 medicines. It is not known if COMPLERA is safe and effective in children under the age of 18 years.

COMPLERA does not cure HIV-1 infection or AIDS. To control HIV-1 infection and decrease HIV-related illnesses you must keep taking COMPLERA. Ask your healthcare provider if you have questions about how to reduce the risk of passing HIV-1 to others. Always practice safer sex and use condoms to lower the chance of sexual contact with body fluids. Never reuse or share needles or other items that have body fluids on them.
