Truvada

Recently I found out that there are meds with help of which you can treat and prevent HIV. Did you hear about it? Meds is called Truvada. Tenofovir/emtricitabine (Truvada) is a fixed-dose combination of two antiretroviral drugs used for the treatment of HIV/AIDS. It was developed by Gilead Sciences and consists of 300 milligrams of tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (of which 245 mg is tenofovir) and 200 milligrams of emtricitabine.

Truvada

TRUVADA is a type of medicine called a nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitor that is used to treat HIV-1 infection in adults and teenagers (12 and older). Truvada is a combination therapy because it has 2 medicines in 1 pill– emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate. Truvada is always used with other anti-HIV medicines to treat HIV-1 infection because Truvada alone is not a complete treatment.

HIV infects important cells for fighting infection called CD4 cells, or T cells. Once HIV enters the body, the virus multiplies inside these cells. These new viruses are released into the blood and infect other CD4 cells. How Truvada can help... When used with another anti-HIV-1 medicine, Truvada helps make it harder for HIV-1 to multiply by blocking an enzyme in your body called reverse transcriptase.

Also this medicine can help reduce the risk of getting HIV-1 infection when used together with safer sex practices. This use is only for adults who are at a high risk of getting HIV-1. This includes HIV-negative men who have sex with men and who are at high risk of getting infected with HIV-1 through sex, and male-female sex partners when one partner has HIV-1 and the other does not. It is really worth to take care about health and be attentive in sexaul relations.

Symptoms of liver problems include your skin or the white part of your eyes turns yellow, dark “tea-colored” urine, light-colored stools, loss of appetite for several days or longer, nausea, and/or stomach-area pain.

Worsening of hepatitis B infection. If you also have HBV and take Truvada, your hepatitis may become worse if you stop taking Truvada. Do not stop taking this meds without first talking to your healthcare provider. If your healthcare provider tells you to stop taking Truvada, they will need to watch you closely for several months to monitor your health. Truvada is not approved for the treatment of HBV.

If your healthcare provider has prescribed Truvada to help reduce the risk of getting HIV-1 infection, you should also know: You must be HIV-negative before you start taking Truvada to reduce the risk of getting HIV-1. You must get tested to make sure that you do not already have HIV-1 infection. Do not take TRUVADA to reduce the risk of getting HIV-1 unless you are confirmed to be HIV-negative.
Many HIV-1 tests can miss HIV-1 infection in a person who has recently become infected. If you have flu-like symptoms, you could have recently become infected with HIV-1.

Just taking Truvada may not keep you from getting HIV-1. You must continue using safer sex practices while you are taking Truvada to reduce your risk of getting HIV-1. To further reduce your risk of getting HIV-1: Get tested for other sexually transmitted infections. Other infections make it easier for HIV-1 to infect you. Get information and support to help reduce risky sexual behavior. Have fewer sex partners. Do not miss any doses of TRUVADA. Missing doses may increase your risk of getting HIV-1 infection.
