Hi, my question isn't long. I just want to find out if using both the Truvada and Lamzid combinations simultaneously can produce better results in preventing infection than using Lamzid or Truvada alone?
Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
There's no data on using both Truvada and Lamzid together for PEP. Indeed, since FTC (part of Truavda) and 3TC (part of Lamzid or Combivir) are nearly identical, there would be no benefit to taking these two together.
Hope that helps. BY
