Gilead warns that counterfeit versions of its HIV meds are being found in US

U.S. pharmacies are selling counterfeit versions of HIV medication, according to the biopharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences. Specifically, Gilead warned that knock-off versions of its Biktarvy and Descovy medications have circulated through pharmacies due to unauthorized distributors. Both medications are used to treat people living with HIV. Descovy is also used as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to prevent HIV-negative people from contracting the virus. The company is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, pharmacies and other legal authorities to track down the culprits and remove the counterfeit meds from the market. Gilead said the counterfeit and tampered medicines can “bring serious and sometimes life-threatening health risks to individuals.”
