Details

Uses

 

Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate/Emtricitabine or Tenvir-EM is used either as a first line of treatment for HIV patients, or for patients who have already received some kind of treatment before. Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate/Emtricitabine is administered as a fixed dose combined with other medication to help treat HIV infections in patients over the age of 18. The primary function of this drug is to slow down the HIV virus thereby limiting its ability to spread. This in turn allows the CD4 cells to increase giving the patient’s immune system a chance to recover and therefore stopping the disease from progressing.

 

Dosage and Administration


Tenvir-EM should be taken strictly in accordance with the prescription given to you by your physician or pharmacist. The dosage varies from case to case, but most often it is one tablet taken once a day with some water with or without food. Do not discontinue or change the dosage of the medication without checking with your doctor first.

Side effects


Tenvir-EM has a few side effects, which are no cause for worry. These are:

  • Headaches

Precautions


Tenvir-EM can be harmful for patients suffering from existing medical conditions like hepatitis B, bone, liver or kidney disease. If you suffer from an existing medical condition, you will have to be monitored closely while you are on this treatment. Therefore it is advisable that your physician has your complete medical history prior to starting the medication. Your physician will also need to know if you are

  • Allergic to any medication
