What is Triumeq?

Triumeq (generic name Abacavir/Dolutegravir/Lamivudine) is a prescription medicine that fights the deadly HIV-1 (human immunodeficiency virus- type 1) virus. Being infected with HIV-1 can cause AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome). By taking Triumeq, you can reduce the amount of HIV-1 in your blood to slow down the development of AIDS. Triumeq can reduce the amount of HIV-1 so much that it's hard to detect the virus during a blood test. This does not mean you are cured though.

Triumeq can also increase the number of 'helper' white blood cells that fight infections. Together, by reducing HIV and increasing white blood cells, Triumeq can help you live a much longer, healthier life.

Conditions treated by Triumeq

Triumeq treats HIV-1 in adults and children that weigh at least 88 pounds. It should not be used alone in people who have a specific type of HIV, so your doctor will let you know if using Triumeq is safe for you. It will not work alone if you have HIV integrase-substitutions, or integrase transfer inhibitor mutations that make Triumeq less likely to work. It will not work by itself if your blood test shows you have resistance to any of the 3 medications in Triumeq (dolutegravir - Tivicay, abacavir - Ziagen, or lamivudine - Epivir).

What are possible Triumeq side effects?

The most common Triumeq side effects include sleeplessness, feeling tired, and headache.

Rare, but serious side effects can also occur. Some people can develop a deadly allergic reaction after taking Triumeq. If you experience 2 or more of the following Triumeq side effects, then call your doctor immediately and stop taking Triumeq:

  • Fever


  • Rash


  • Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Stomach Cramps

    Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Stomach Cramps

  • Extreme tiredness, or achiness

    Extreme tiredness, or achiness

  • Cough, feeling out of breath, sore throat

    Cough, feeling out of breath, sore throat

You are more likely to have a severe allergic reaction if you have a gene called HLA-B*5701. Your doctor will do a blood test to check for this gene before you start taking Triumeq.

These Triumeq side effects are listed on a warning card that comes with the prescription. Always keep this warning card with you at all times.

If you have an allergic reaction to Triumeq or any medicine with abacivir (such as abacavir/lamivudine), and you accidentally take another dose of Triumeq after having the reaction, this can lead to very low blood pressure that can be deadly. This can happen within hours of taking Triumeq.

If you stop Triumeq, and you are not allergic to it, then talk to your doctor before starting to take it again (even if you just missed it for a few days). There is a possibility that it could cause a serious or deadly allergic reaction when you start using it again. If your doctor says you can start using it again, make sure your doctor or healthcare team can monitor you in case a serious allergic reaction should occur.

Another possible Triumeq side effect is worsening of Hepatitis B infections. If you have HIV and hepatitis B, then taking Triumeq can make the hepatitis B harder to treat. Sometimes, Triumeq causes the hepatitis B virus to change in such a way that your hepatitis medicine may not work as well. It can also cause a hepatitis B flare up 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.

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 as they may indicate that your liver has stopped working.

A buildup of lactic acid in your blood may also occur when taking Triumeq. This can make you feel tired or weak, with muscle aches. You may feel cold, dizzy, or lightheaded, or have an unusually fast heartbeat. Liver problems may also develop if there is too much lactic acid. Generally, this is more common in female and overweight people.

Sometimes, Triumeq may increase the risk of having a heart attack.

Triumeq 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 called immune reconstitution syndrome.

What you should know before using Triumeq.

Talk to your doctor if any of the following apply to you:

  • Heart problems

    Having high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart problems

  • Smoker

    Being a smoker

  • Kidney problems

    Kidney problems

  • Liver problems

    Liver problems (such as hepatitis infections, or other liver illness)

  • Breastfeeding

    Are breastfeeding, or planning to breastfeed

  • Medicines

    You take any other prescription or over-the-counter medicines (including iron, calcium, laxatives, or vitamins, among others)

Do not breastfeed or become pregnant while on Triumeq. HIV can pass through breastmilk, and Triumeq may harm an unborn baby.

Do not use Triumeq if you take Tikosyn (dofetalide) to treat an irregular heartbeat. If used together, they can cause serious and potentially deadly side effects.

Do not use Triumeq if you're allergic to any of the ingredients in Triumeq, or if you have a gene called HLA-B*5701.

If you begin using Triumeq, review the dosing instructions given by your doctor. Do not change or stop your dose unless directed by your doctor. Be careful not to run out of Triumeq. 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 Triumeq, go to the emergency room.


  • What is the proper dosage of Triumeq?

    Triumeq dosing must be personalized and will vary based on other medications that are currently being used with Triumeq.

    For most patients who weigh more than 88 lbs, the appropriate dose is one tablet once daily, with or without food.

  • How much does Triumeq cost?

    Triumeq can be expensive because it is only available as a brand-name medication. Prescription Triumeq cost will vary depending on the dose and how it is prescribed. Patients may buy Triumeq online from at a more affordable price.
