plsease answer this Q for me !
Aug 17, 2004

Dear Dr Conway,

I would like to know is the once a day regime :

"Truvada (Viread + Emtriva) or Epzicom (Ziagen + Epivir)"

is avilable in CANADA ?

Response from Dr. Conway

Truvada is not yet available in Canada as a combination pill, but its components are available separately (Viread and Emtriva). You could substitute Epivir for Emtriva, though and expect good results.

Similarly, Epzicom as a combination pill is not yet available either, but you can use Ziagen and Epivir as individual drugs once a day quite easily and effectively.
