Uses: This product is a combination of two different drugs, emtricitabine and tenofovir. This product is used to treat HIV infection. It works by slowing the growth of the virus. Emtricitabine is called a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor, while tenofovir is called a nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitor. They are often referred to as NRTIs. NRTIs are usually used in combination with other HIV medications (e.g., protease inhibitor). Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details. This product and other anti-HIV drugs may help to control your HIV infection, thereby improving your quality of life and lowering your risk of getting complications from HIV (e.g., opportunistic infections, cancer). This product is not a cure for HIV infection, and it does not prevent the spread of HIV to others through sexual contact or blood contamination (e.g., sharing used needles).
