Effective August 26, 2022, the medications primaquine, rifapentine (Priftin®), and rifaximin (Xifaxan®) have been added to the ADAP formulary to improve treatment options for HIV-related opportunistic infections.
Adding primaquine, rifapentine (Priftin®), and rifaximin (Xifaxan®) medications to the ADAP formulary provides greater options to ADAP clients in the treatment of opportunistic infections and helps to ensure that ADAP clients receive care consistent with current national guidelines: Guidelines for the Prevention and Treatment of Opportunistic Infections in Adults and Adolescents with HIV.
ADAP management requests that you share this information with your clinical leadership team and local prescribers. The ADAP drug formulary has been updated to reflect the addition of primaquine, rifapentine (Priftin®), and rifaximin (Xifaxan®).
If you have any questions regarding the addition of these medications to the ADAP formulary, please contact James Vo, ADAP Specialist, at (916) 449-5965.
