Is dolutegravir/lamivudine single pill (Dovato) available in the UK yet?
Hello, I’d like to switch from Triumeq to Dovato (I’ve been undetectable for 3.5 years now) and my upcoming doctor’s appointment is at the end of February 2020. My HIV care is at one of the major hospitals in Central London. Has the NHS (HIV doctors) started prescribing Dovato yet? If yes, will I be able to request a switch from Truimeq to Dovato during my doctor’s appointment at the end of February 2020?
The single pill dolutegravir/lamivudine (Dovato) was approved by NHS Scotland in September.
NHS England took slightly longer but was approved this week (though there hasn’t been a major announcement yet I can link to).
This means London clinics should be able to prescribe this very soon. It is also okay to prescribed the two separate pills if there is a delay for any reason at your clinic.
