Tenvir or Combivir

May 14, 2013

Hi i had an exposure with an hiv positive person and i took 5 hours after combivir with aluvia and the following morning i took again combivir with aluvia, but then the same night before i was due for my next medication i took tenvir-em with aluvia instead of combivir because it was suggested from another pharmacy that i went for a second opinion. Do you still think is ok that i have changed the second day to tenvir from combivir and did i make the right choice ?

Response from Dr. Young


In the context of PEP, there's no real difference in effectiveness between Combivir and Tenvir (Truvada). Indeed, Tenvir is typically much better tolerated.

I hope that's helpful, BY

Truvada and is isentress combo
