Iím on Tivicay and Truvada being switched from Genvoya.

I understand itís a different combination, but side effects Iíve had from both are VERY dry sore skin on my face & arms. Tiredness and high heart rate. That was for about 4 weeks & itís all started to settle down now. I am taking Tivicay twice a day with food.

To the last guy I'm surprised it's twice a day.  I'm once daily, 0900 local with minimal variation.  As near as I can tell the worst I've had is fatigue and muscle tiredness (weakness, less than normal capacity).  Honestly though that could be other causes for me.  I recently got a new ID who wants to switch me to bictarvy personally I'm not keen.  Don't fix what isn't broken.

Yes Iím on tivicay plus descovy approx 6 months. I was switched from Genvoya as my liver test was very high back then.
I like tivicay plus descovy because it does not matter if I take them on empty stomach or after food so much more flexibility with this combo. I read too thereís less other drug interactions too. I pop them in the morning about 7am or so, and maybe 9am on Sunday. No side effects at all and Iím UD.
Only tiny issue is itís 2 bottles of pills.
I read a few days about that tivicay plus descovy is one of the most modern combos and just as good as Biktarvy.

Yes twice a day as this is my 3rd combo since Aug 18. Iíve had low level VL, so the dr has asked to me Take Tivicay twice a day until I am U. Then back to once a day.

Hey ..thanks all for replying..i too love my combination and it doesnt matters if you pop one pill or two as its just a fraction of seconds..the meds shud have least side effects thats what all it matters...and the transition from atripla to tivicay plus descovy had been so great..all my anxiety and depression is gone for good!!Although atripla worked v well but cudnt handle the dizziness after having it with food or alcohol once or twice a week..<3 to all
