lamivudine together with efavirenz
Sep 7, 2017

Hello doctor Young. I've been on antiretroviral therapy for seven months. I take tenofovir 300mg and lamivudine 150mg together at 8 am, then lamivudine 150mg at 8pm and efavirenz 600mg at 9pm. I never had adverse effects. In july, my viral load was 59 and cd4 709. My question is: Is there a possibility I can take lamivudine and efavirenz together at 8pm?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

All of your medications can be taken once daily (the lamivudine dose would be 300 mg (or 2 x 150 mg) once-daily). This combination is widely available as a single pill.

So you could take all of your meds (tenofovir, lamivudine and efavirenz) together, once-daily at your 9PM dosing.
