Today, we’re talking about Apretude (cabotegravir), an injectable form of PrEP. To learn more about Apretude (cabotegravir), visit https://apretude.com/.
In my pronunciation episodes, I say a brand drug name and its generic, break both drug names down into syllables, explain which syllable(s) have the emphasis, reveal the source(s) of the information, and put the written pronunciations of both in the show notes so that you see them and use them right away.
The purpose of these pronunciation episodes is to provide the intended pronunciations of drug names from reliable sources. I want you to feel confident saying drug names and less frustrated learning them.
