Howdy ... so Iím a long time user of Genvoya, now healthy, happy and undetectable.

I canít buy it in the country I live, and due to travel restrictions, looks like I will need to switch to a local medicine, which is:

tenofovir (TDF) 300mg, lamivudine (3TC) 300mg vŗ dolutegravir (DTG) 50mg

OR ... I can brave air travel, lengthy quarantine, weeks off work ... and try to get to my Genvoya. 

What do we think?  Is this change going to be a big deal?  What sort of risk do we all see?  Worst case???

Thanks all!

Look I'm avoiding travel myself at the moment.

Given the choice, if it was me I would switch, but that's me. Talk to your doctors about what combinations would suit you and are available. You could even go with just DTG+3TC.

Best, Jim
