A single cap for a single dose (2/7 or 1/7)

In maintenance, one can question the relevance of a daily Truvada®; with the arrival of Mylan's Truvada ® generic, and soon of Atripla ®, you can discuss the daily half-pill.

Here comes the Great Single Capsule !!!

The trick: the Triple Zero 000 capsule

Just type "Triple Zero Capsule" or "empty capsules 000" in Amazon. Direct link. Or ask your pharmacist. The capsule dissolves immediately and completely in the stomach.

Here with 2 x Tivicay® + Lamivudine. It also works with 1 x Tenvir or Viread® (TDF) and probably generic Truvada®.

I am at 2 x 50 mg DTG + 300 mg 3TC, 1/7; With the fall, I caught something, and the 3-month VL raised just above 50. Not enough to scare me: I play safe: 15j. in 7/7, then 15j. with single capsule 3 x 50 mg DTG (Wednesday and Saturday). Then I will carry on with a single capsule 3 x 50 mg DTG, in 1/7, Saturday, with meal, and VL 1 month later.

A 100 capsules pack (2 years, taken weekly) will cost you $ 10 (including shipping); a 1000 pack (3 years in 7/7): $ 30; So between $ 1.5 and $ 10 a year!

Generic of Truvada® = the end of Triumeq® ?

As the generic of Truvada® (Mylan) is 179 euros, instead of 406 euros, this combo TenofovirDF / emtricitabine (Ge) + Tivicay® (dolutegravir) is at 788 euros instead of Triumeq® (ABC / 3TC / DTG ) at 928: one saves 140 Euros per month and avoids the calamitous Abacavir. 1600 Eu Less / year!

Tivicay® + Truvada® was the most expensive: this is no longer true, thanks to the generic, and with the 000, we regain the comfort of a single capsule.

Generic, ric, ric, ric

The inside diameter of 000 fits exactly that of Tivicay®, and then, you complete; Done with opening several boxes, or asking oneself "Did I forgot X or Y": for $ 5 you can enjoy again the comfort so much praised by BigPharma and their collaborators!

The ICCARRIAN veterans are still dreaming of an all-in-one Quadritherapy: For us, it's solved! Is this trick of interest to you? Thanks for sharing your experience!
