I am HIV +ve. My CD4 is 310. I am using medications from 15 days. I use Trustiva. This is only one pill. My doctor says that it is enough. Is this is good or not? Please advice me.
Is Trustiva good enough?
Trustiva is a combined name of the generic versions of the medications Truvada and Sustiva. Truvada consists of tenofovir and emtricitabine, while Sustiva is efavirenz. All these three components are combined in one pill. Even if it is one pill, it has all the components of a triple therapy in it.
There is the same medication in the developed countries under the trade name of Atripla.
This combination is the recommended first line therapy in the UK. Threfore, your doctor advises you well.
