What is Tivicay?
Tivicay (dolutegravir) is a first- and second-line treatment for HIV/AIDS in both adults and children who are at least 12 years old. It’s also used prophylactically following HIV exposure. Tivicay is not a cure, but it can greatly reduce the HIV level in the bloodstream and increase the number of immune cells available to fight off the opportunistic infections associated with HIV.
Tivicay comes in tablet form and is taken once or twice daily, with or without food.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
It’s particularly important for people with HIV/AIDS to have an uninterrupted supply of Tivicay because it significantly reduces the HIV viral load. Even a short break in Tivicay treatment can cause the virus circulating in the bloodstream to become resistant to other HIV medications.
Many people are not aware that there are sources of prescription assistance available to those who are having trouble paying for Tivicay and other essential medications. Our mission at Simplefill is to connect people who need financial help with the programs and organizations that offer it.
How Does Tivicay Work?
Tivicay is an antiretroviral medication that’s classified as an integrase inhibitor. This means that it blocks the action of the protein integrase that’s found on the surface of HIV cells. Integrase plays a key role in integrating HIV’s genetic code into human cells, which is how the virus replicates. Inhibiting integrase reduces the number of HIV-infected cells in the body. Tivicay also increases the number of CD4 cells, white blood cells produced by the immune system to help fight off infections.
