Undetectable means reducing the HIV in your blood to very low levels. Results may vary.

one pill

TRIUMEQ is one pill, taken once a day.

TRIUMEQ is not for use by itself in some people. Take TRIUMEQ exactly as your healthcare provider tells you.

night or day

TRIUMEQ can be taken day or night, around the same time each day.

The HLA-B*5701 screening test

Before you take TRIUMEQ, your doctor will give you a genetic screening test if you have not already had one. If you test positive for the HLA-B*5701 gene variation, you can't take TRIUMEQ.

If your
HLA-B*5701 test
is Positive

+
  • You have the HLA-B*5701 gene variation.
  • This means you should not take medicines containing abacavir, including TRIUMEQ.
  • You have a much higher risk for a serious allergic reaction (hypersensitivity reaction) that can cause death if you take medicines containing abacavir, including TRIUMEQ.

If your
HLA-B*5701 test
is Negative

  • You do not have the HLA-B*5701 gene variation.
  • You may still have a hypersensitivity reaction to TRIUMEQ, though the risk is much lower.
  • Ask your doctor if a medicine containing abacavir, like TRIUMEQ, may be right for you.

TRIUMEQ by the numbers

Clinical information about TRIUMEQ: SINGLE Study

SINGLE is a medical study of 833 adult patients living with HIV-1 who had never taken HIV-1 treatment before. In that study, more patients got to undetectable (less than 50 copies of HIV-1 RNA in a mL of blood) with TRIUMEQ than with Atripla®. The difference in results was mostly due to more patients on Atripla stopping their medicine because of side effects than patients on TRIUMEQ.

Your results may vary.

Clinical information about TRIUMEQ in women: ARIA Study

ARIA was a 48-week medical study with 495 adult women who had never taken HIV-1 medicines before. The women were split into two groups: one group was given TRIUMEQ and the other group was given Reyataz®/Norvir®/Truvada®.

ARIA was an open-label study, so both the patients and the healthcare providers knew which medicine the patients were taking.

Your results may vary.
