How Do Isentress Side Effects Compare to Tivicay? (Editor's Pick)

Question

Is raltegravir (Isentress) is highly tolerable like Dolutegravir or Does it have any side effects.

Answer

Hello and thanks for posting.

Raltegravir is extremely well tolerated, and in a huge clinical trial called Spring-2, RAL was compared head to head against dolutegravir (DTG, Tivicay, part of Triumeq) and both were found to have similar, and outstanding side effect profiles. The main difference between the two is RAL is dosed twice daily, and DTG once daily.

Hope that helps. BY
