diffence between Tenolam and tenolam E in hiv treatment
May 28, 2013

hiv treatment is tenolam e better than tenolam,or can they be used interchangebly say this month tenolam E next month tenolam?

Response from Dr. Henry

Tenolam is a generic form of tenofovir + lamivudine ( a 2 drug combination) whereas I believe Tenolam-E also contains efavirenz ( a 3 drug regimen) The drugs are not interchangeable. Tenolam-E is suitable for treatment of HIV infection while Tenolam would not be recommended for treatment of HIV infection in most settings. KH

Persistent Fever
