What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

The four drugs contained in Genvoya are elvitegravir, cobicistat, emtricitabine, and tenofovir alafenamide.

Genvoya may not be right for everyone. You and your doctor should discuss treatment options that may be best for you.

Routes of administration

By Mouth


Take Genvoya as your doctor has prescribed. If you have any questions or concerns about the medication, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

The recommended Genvoya dosage is to take one tablet by mouth once daily with food. 


Each Genvoya tablet consists of 150 mg of elvitegravir (HIV-1 integrase strand transfer inhibitor), 150 mg of cobicistat (CYP3A inhibitor), 200 mg of emtricitabine (HIV-1 nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitor), and 10 mg of tenofovir alafenamide (HIV-1 nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitor).

Croscarmellose sodium, hydroxypropyl cellulose, lactose monohydrate, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, silicon dioxide, and sodium lauryl sulfate are the inactive ingredients. FD&C Blue No. 2/indigo carmine aluminum lake, iron oxide yellow, polyethylene glycol, polyvinyl alcohol, talc, and titanium dioxide make up the tablet coating.


Patients should not take Genvoya with certain drugs, including those that:

  • depend highly on CYP3A for clearance from the body and are associated with serious reactions at high levels in the body
  • are strong CYP3A inducers, which can decrease Genvoya's efficacy

Ask your doctor if you do not know whether or not you take any of these medications.


FDA Boxed Warning: Severe acute worsening of hepatitis B have occurred in patients who are coinfected with HIV-1 and HBV and have stopped taking products containing emtricitabine and/or tenofovir disoproxil fumarate and can occur upon stopping Genvoya. Liver function should be closely monitored and treatment for hepatitis B initiated if needed.

  • Before you start taking Genvoya, discuss the following with your doctor:
    • All the prescription and over-the-counter medications you take
    • Your allergies
    • Your medical history and health problems
    • Your pregnancy or breastfeeding status
  • Genvoya may cause kidney problems. Patients' kidney function should be monitored before and during treatment with Genvoya.
  • Genvoya may cause immune system problems.
  • Genvoya may cause lactic acidosis and severe liver enlargement with fat in the liver.

Side Effects

A common Genvoya side effect is nausea. However, this is not the only side effect that Genvoya can cause. 

Call your doctor immediately if you have bothersome or persistent side effects.
