Introduction post & question Taffic tablets
« on: May 20, 2020, 02:13:04 am »
Hi I just got diagnosed on 1 Apr 2020 and currently on Biktarvy.

I was searching for alternative medicine sources and found there is a generic of the same medicine sold in India called Taffic.

I wonder if anyone who has taken the generic tab before. How different was it than taking the original, other than price?

Thank you for sharing your experience!

Hiya,

Welcome to the forum, sorry to hear about the diagnosis.
 
I've moved your post so you have your own introduction thread for the forum, prehaps you can let us know a bit more about you and how you are getting on?  How is treatment going so far?

Regarding the meds, Taffic, is a once-a-day single pill, a combination of three medicines - Bictegravir (50mg), Emtricitabine (200mg), and Tenofovir Alafenamide (25mg).

Biktarvy, is a once-a-day single pill, a combination of three medicines - Bictegravir (50mg), Emtricitabine (200mg), and Tenofovir Alafenamide (25mg).

If it's a true generic than the active ingredients and the effects should be the same.

There are plenty of forum members who take generic meds, not sure about Taffic though but if someone is they will surely chime in.

Take it easy

Best, Jim
