This can be accomplished through specialized medications that are filled with antiretrovirals. This drug is administered in combination with others like it to reduce the amount of the virus in your blood and bodily fluids. This medication can keep you healthy and help prevent the spread of the virus to your partners as well.

These types of medication have been used to treat HIV since the mid-1990s and have been deemed as one of the most effective forms of treatment for this incurable disease.
