Question

Are Atrozia and Luvigen the same thing?

I’ve just come back from clinic. The ARVs that I usually take are called Atrozia. I’ve now been given an ARV called Luvigen is this the same as Atrozia?

Answer

Thanks for getting in touch.

The ARVs that you’ve been given are different to Atrozia. What you’ve been changed to is a generic version of TLD, please see here:  https://i-base.info/guides/12423

In South Africa it’s now common to be changed from Atrozia, which is a generic of Atripla. There are less side effects with TLD, however there can be issues with weight gain. As you’ve been changed to a different combination, you should have been told.
