Question

What is the difference between Reydin and Telatri?

Good day, I have been taking Telatri for treatment for the past two months. Today on collecting my treatment they gave me Reydin.
I want to know the effect of this change in medication.

Answer

Hi, how are you doing?

There is no difference between the two medications. They are both generic versions of the same medication. In this cases they are different names for TLD.

They have different names because they have been made by a different company but they still contain the same ingredients. For this reason there will be no changes from taking Reydin instead of Telatri.

Both Telatri and Reydin contain; tenofovir, lamivudine and dolutegravir.

    Hi Mammy, yes there is a difference but it is safe to change.

    Both Odimune and Telatri contain lamivudine and tenofovir. The difference is Odimune contains efavirenz and Telatri contains dolutegravir. They both work as well as each other.

    People are being switched from combinations with efavirenz to dolutegravir because of side effects. Efavirenz is not usually well tolerated by people and has difficult side effects. Dolutegravir is a newer drug that is much more easily tolerated and makes taking ART easier.

    This is a very common switch, mainly in countries like South Africa.
