I am currently taking Truvada, Reyataz, and Norvir. Is there an all in one pill I could take instead of taking 3 different pills once a day? Thank you for your assistance and have a great day. Larry

Response from Dr. Young


No, there isn't any way to get your already low pill count any lower, except to change the nature of your medications. There is a three-drug coformulated medication, Atripla, which contains the medications in Truvada (tenofovir/FTC) combined with a different drug, efavirenz.

Personally, I think that the emphasis here shouldn't be on 1 pill versus 3 pills, but rather which of these low pill count regimens is best for you, your adherence and for controlling your virus.

Talk to your doctor about your questions and needs. BY

viramune once or twice per day?
