Once a day second line pill
Oct 9, 2012

In continuation with the previous question, I'd like to know that when second line a day a pill will be available in India or in any market. After your answer I'd given up all hopes that second line a day a pill would ever arrive. But some promising reports evinces the possibility of such a pill to soon hit the market. Plz go through it...Mylan Receives WHO Approval for Innovative 'Second-Line-in-a-Box'

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for sharing.

Most of the literature that we access is about brand name products and not the generic manufactured products- such as this one from Mylan.

Please note that the combination of tenofovir/3TC/ritonavir/atazanavir is also considered a first-line treatment; such products are generally not available in North America and Europe while the patents for the component drugs are still in effect.
