Truvada is a medication that contains two generic active ingredients called emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate. Truvada is prescribed for HIV infections.
Doctors prescribe Truvada to treat HIV infection when used with other anti-HIV drugs in adults. When used with safer sex practices, Truvada may also help to reduce the risk of getting HIV infection before exposure to HIV.
Truvada works by blocking HIV reverse transcriptase, an enzyme in your body that is necessary for HIV to multiply, thereby reducing the amount of HIV in the blood (viral load). This lowers the chances of infections that happen when your immune system is weak (opportunistic infections).
For the treatment of HIV infection, the usual dose of Truvada is one tablet taken orally once a day, in combination with other anti-HIV medicines. Truvada may be taken with or without a meal. For prevention of HIV infection, the usual dose is one tablet taken orally once a day.
These may not be all the side effects of Truvada 200/300mg.
Do not use Truvada if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in this formulation.
Let your doctor know if you have other medical conditions, especially liver, bone and kidney problems.
Do not keep your medicine in places that are too hot or cold. Store in its original container at room temperature, safely out of reach of children.
HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a sexually transmitted infection. HIV destroys CD4 cells (T cells), which are important to the immune system. Over time, after a large number of T cells are destroyed and the immune system is weakened, acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) develops. Within a month or two after the virus enters the body, patients may experience symptoms such as fever, sore throat, rash, swollen lymph glands or headache. The next stage of HIV infection is called the clinical latent infection phase, which can last for decades in people taking antiretroviral medications. While there is no cure, there are many medications that keep the virus in check. Your doctor will monitor your viral load and CD4 counts to see how you are responding to treatment. It is important to remember that you can still transmit HIV to others, even when your viral load is very low or undetectable through tests. You must remain on continuous HIV therapy to control the infection and reduce HIV-related illnesses.
