One of the products is Mylan-emtricitabine/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 200 mg/300 mg, a generic alternative to Truvada.

Mylan received final approval from Health Canada for this product and for Mylan-efavirenz/emtricitabine/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 600 mg, 200 mg, and 300 mg, a generic alternative to Atripla; and Mylan-tenofovir disoproxil 300 mg, a generic alternative to Viread.
