Is Tyricten acceptable as a generic for Truvada?
Feb 23, 2011

For some years now I have responded well to my treatment with Truvada and Stocrin. My new medical aid provider has now decided to supply me with Tyricten (produced by the Indian company Aurobindo). Is Tyricten just as good as Truvada or should I be worried?

Response from Dr. Henry

If the Tyricten (generic for Truvada) is an WHO approved (or some other regulatory body) drug I would be fairly confident that your response to the generic will be similar/identical to the brand name drug. KH
