Hospital Gave Me Sustiva and Truvada
« on: January 10, 2013, 05:45:50 PM »
Question: I have been on Atripla for most of the time I have been positive. Well, during last night's hospital stay, the hospital gave me Sustiva pill and Truvada pill.... Is this the equivalent of Atripla? Sorry for my ignorance - but I have never received just Sustiva alone with an additional ARV.... and I am too lazy to look it up right now.

Back to my regular Atripla this evening.

Thanks bug -
I thought it probably was....
And, I knew that even if it wasn't - one dose wasn't going to effect me one way or the other - but still wanted to check.

Oh, and BTW, if hospital ER ever puts a nitro patch on - make sure they take it off in a timely manner --- they left mine on all night and I woke up with a massive headache from the over-dilation (lol).  On the bright side, it somehow managed to also clear my sinuses up (go figure).

Exactly the same thing, you just have not to forget to take two different pills...  Same side effects and so on...  My pharmacy changes me the brand each months and in 6 months I may have tried differents kind of generics of ATRIPLA in one or two pills, just have to remerber if this month it is one or two pills a day (easy to do with these weekly boxes...),the only difference is the pills colour and size...

It is always important to check what pharmacy really gives, after 3 months of one pill regime, in my hospital they changed back to two pills and some people went home only with an Efavirenz or only with an Entricitabina/Tenofovir box...... not good !!!
