A study for HIV-1 infected individuals currently taking Complera® with an undectable viral load. Complera will be compared to an investigational fixed dose combination (FDC) tablet containing FTC/RPV/TAF. The trial is not only measuring the effectiveness of the medication to suppress viral load, but also comparing the side effects of the two medications. Patients will be asked to follow-up for at least one year. Fixed Dose Combination tablets help to decrease the pill burden for patients.
