Tenemine for HIV prevention

I was told it was the same medication but had a change of container. It's now called Tenemine... M117 blue oval pill. It contains: Tenofovir + disoproxil + fumarate + emtricitabile. I'm really worried. Is my doctor still giving me the right medication? I'm HIV negative. ## Hi. Hope someone can help. My partner is HIV + and is on Atroiza.

May i still take my Altosec 20mg? ## Can i take Atripla with a laxative? ## Peter, from what I am seeing on the UCLA Health website, there are possible interactions between these drugs, but they are listed as "low" severity.

Genvoya giving a strange smell after taking it

Every time I take my daily Genvoya (just started on it after switching from Atripla) about 3 months ago, I start to smell a strange scent. It doesn't smell bad, sort of sweet, sort of like plugging in one of those strong Airwick plug-ins... I know - sounds strange. I take the medicine with supper at night, and I get the smell all evening and during the night. But by the morning, the scent has pretty much disappeared, only to be completely gone by Noon. But then it starts all over again later in the day when i take the next dosage. Anyone else have this issue? I know it is minor, but just curious if this is common. My doctor doesn't have a clue, as usual on these types of symptoms.. ## That can be a side effect of most medications, they can mess with your sense of smell, and tast...
