    Hi Kathy-
    I think this list from the FDA is pretty good: https://hivinfo.nih.gov/understanding-hiv/fact-sheets/fda-approved-hiv-medicines

    There's also Appendix B in the DHHS guidelines- but that may be more than you are looking for! https://clinicalinfo.hiv.gov/en/guidelines/adult-and-adolescent-arv/characteristics-nucleoside-reverse-transcriptase-inhibitors?view=full

    Best,
    Melissa

    Hello Kathy,

    I found most of the answers on National HIV Curriculum website. https://www.hiv.uw.edu/
    For drug interactions I used https://www.hiv-druginteractions.org/checker
    And yes, some questions are very tough, but I guess it helped me dig deep into some research articles related to HIV.
    All the best.

    Kathy - most of the med list have both generic and brand - if you send me your email - I can send you some links and a list that I use.
