Is it safe to take Luvigen when pregnant?

Is it safe to take Luvigen once pregnant?

Answer

Hi, how are you?

It is safe to take Luvigen while pregnant. Luvigen is a generic combination of Tenofovir DF, Lamivudine, and Dolutegravir Together known as TLD. There is a small increased risk of neural tube defects due to Dolutegravir, but TLD still remains first line management for women of child bearing age as recommended by UK and World Health guidelines.

In the UK it is recommended that women supplement their ART with Folic Acid to reduce the risk of neural tube defects, and do so for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

Please ask if you have any further questions,

Josh.
