DOVATO is a prescription medicine that is used without other antiretroviral medicines to treat human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) infection in adults who have not received antiretroviral medicines in the past, and without known resistance to the medicines dolutegravir or lamivudine. HIV-1 is the virus that causes Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). It is not known if DOVATO is safe and effective in children.

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.

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 and over-the-counter medicines you are taking. That way they can prescribe a treatment that will work for you—and works with your other medicines.

Types of treatment

Today, many single-tablet HIV treatments have at least 3 different medicines combined into 1 pill.

DOVATO has just 2 medicines in 1 pill and is clinically proven to help you reach and then stay undetectable. That means fewer medicines in your body, today and tomorrow, while taking DOVATO.

Results may vary.

*Undetectable means reducing HIV in the blood to very low levels (less than 50 copies per mL).
