The product Truvada 200mg/245mg from Ireland is equivalent to Truvada 200mg/300mg

A map of Ireland

Truvada 200mg/245mg contains 200mg Emtricitabine and 245mg of tenofovir disoproxil which is equal to 300mg tenofovir disoproxil fumarate OR 136mg tenofovir. 

Each “piece” of the tenofovir molecule has a weight that makes up the total weight of 300mg.  

That is:

  • 300mg tenofovir disoproxil fumarate = 245mg of tenofovir disoproxil = 136mg tenofovir

Perhaps the diagram below will help to clarify things:

So, Truvada 200/245 from Ireland is the same as Truvada 200/300.

Ireland has chosen to market this same product with a different number representing the strength of the active ingredient tenofovir.
