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.
