Dr Benjamin, First of all lot of thanks to you for solving all my queries patiently. This is just to inform you that Cipla has launched a second line (Synthivan + tenvirEM) kit called Qvir kit which costs lesser then the above mentioned drugs. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for one tablet a day.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for sharing.

It's interesting to watch the emergence of new coformulations of existing medications from India-- such as the combination of tenofovir+emtricitabine +ritonavir+atazanavir that you've described. By the way, this regimen is frequently used as a first-line regimen here in the US.

Moreover, it's noteworthy that Cipla has been able to coformulate and reduce the price.

Be well, BY
