Schedule Icon

Your schedule
HIV medications have to be taken as directed by your doctor to reach and keep HIV undetectable.* Do you work long hours? Eat at different times each day? Telling your doctor about your routine will help them find a treatment that will work for you.

Medicine Icon

Types of treatment
Today, many single-tablet HIV treatments have at least 3 different medicines combined into 1 pill. DOVATO delivers powerful results with just 2 medicines in 1 pill. It’s proven as effective as an HIV treatment with 3 or 4 medicines. That means fewer medicines in your body, today and tomorrow, while taking DOVATO.
Results may vary.

Prescription Icon

Your other medicines
You may be taking additional medicines. Since some medicines don’t work well when taken together, it’s important to let your doctor know about any prescription or over-the-counter medicines or supplements you are taking. That way they can prescribe a treatment that will work for you—and works with your other medicines.

Health Goals Icon

Your HIV health goals
Do you know how many medicines are in your current HIV treatment? Could fewer medicines work for you? Ask your doctor if taking fewer medicines with DOVATO could be part of a healthy future.

* Undetectable means the amount of HIV in the blood is below the level that can be measured by a lab test.
As compared with 3- or 4-drug regimens.
Based on data from the GEMINI 1 & 2 studies (patients new to treatment) and TANGO study (patients replacing their current HIV treatment). DOVATO was compared with a regimen containing either 3 or 4 medicines, measuring either the percentage of patients with an undetectable viral load (<50 copies/mL) or the percentage of patients without an undetectable viral load (≥50 copies/mL).
