What is Tivicay?

Tivicay (generic name Dolutegravir) is a prescription medicine that is used only in combination with other medications (such as rilpivirine) to fight the deadly HIV-1 (human immunodeficiency virus- type 1) virus. Being infected with HIV-1 can cause AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome). By taking Tivicay, you can reduce the amount of HIV-1 in your blood to slow down the development of AIDS. Tivicay can reduce the amount of HIV-1 and also increase the number of 'helper' white blood cells which fight infections. Together, by reducing HIV and increasing white blood cells, Tivicay can help you live a healthier life.

What is Tivicay used for?

Tivicay treats HIV-1 in adults and children that weigh at least 66 pounds. Do not take Tivicay if you are allergic to any medicine that contains dolutegravir. Do not use Tivicay if you take dofetilide for an irregular heartbeat.

Tivicay is not for people who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. Do not use Tivicay if you are breastfeeding or planning to breastfeed. Do not use Tivicay if you currently have or have had liver problems. If you take any other prescriptions, vitamins, over-the counter medicines, or herbal supplements (including metformin, rifampin, calcium, or iron) let your doctor know before starting Tivicay.

What are possible Tivicay side effects?

The most common Tivicay side effects are trouble sleeping, feeling tired, or getting a headache.

Call your doctor immediately if you experience a rash after taking Tivicay. This could be a sign of a serious allergic reaction.

Call your doctor if you get a rash, along with any of the following symptoms:

  • Feeling tired or achy

  • A high body temperature (fever)

  • Muscle or joint pain

  • Swelling of the face, mouth, tongue, or lips that might cause trouble breathing

  • Blisters, pimples or sores inside your mouth

  • Peeling or blistered skin

  • Red or swollen eyes

  • Problems breathing

Another possible Tivicay side effect is worsening of Hepatitis B or C infections. If you have HIV and hepatitis B or C, then taking Tivicay can make the hepatitis harder to treat. Sometimes, Tivicay causes the hepatitis virus to change in such a way that your hepatitis medicine may not work as well. It can also cause a hepatitis flare in which your hepatitis infection worsens and harms your liver. This can be serious and deadly, so be sure your doctor does blood tests regularly to check your liver.

Serious liver problems can occur where your liver stops working. If you have liver problems, you may feel sick to your stomach, or vomit. You may lose your appetite, or have stomach pain. Your stools can become light colored, and your urine can become dark, or brownish like tea. Your skin or eyes may appear yellowish (jaundice). Call your doctor immediately if you notice any of these problems.

Tivicay is able to weaken the HIV virus well enough that your immune system may suddenly begin to fight other infections that were waiting in your body before the HIV infection. This is referred to as immune reconstitution syndrome. If you suddenly start having new health problems after taking Tivicay, call your doctor.

What is the proper dosage of Tivicay?

Follow the instructions provided by your doctor regarding Tivicay dosage. The dose varies based on body weight and other medications currently being used along with Tivicay. Generally, people can take Tivicay either once or twice daily as directed by their doctor.

If you take any medicine that contains aluminum, magnesium, or a buffer (such as a laxative or antacid), then do not take it along with Tivicay. Take Tivicay at least 2 hours before or 6 hours after the other medication to ensure that Tivicay will work properly.

If you take iron or calcium supplements, and your doctor tells you to take Tivicay with food, then you can take the supplements at the same time as Tivicay. If your doctor tells you to take Tivicay without food, then do not take it with iron or calcium. Take Tivicay at least 2 hours before or 6 hours after the iron or calcium to ensure that Tivicay will work properly.

Do not change or stop your dose unless directed by your doctor. Do not run out of Tivicay. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If you miss any doses, the HIV can become harder to treat. Do not double up on doses if it's already time for your next dose. If you accidentally take too much Tivicay, call your doctor and go to the closest emergency room.
