About Generic Truvada PrEP Treatment

What is Generic Truvada?

This product contains two active medications or ingredients: emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil. These are both antiretroviral medicines used to treat HIV infection. As HIV treatment, this should be used in combination with other medicines to help control HIV infection. As pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to prevent HIV, it can be used as a defensive/preventative strategy for people who are HIV-negative and are at high risk of contracting HIV.

How Emtricitabine/Tenofovir (PrEP) works

This medication works by causing HIV infected cells to slow down or stop producing new viruses. It does this by interfering with an enzyme called HIV reverse transcriptase. HIV infected cells use this enzyme to reproduce new viruses. By inhibiting this enzyme, it prevents HIV from making more replications of itself. This process also results in an increase in the number of healthy cells in the body.

Essential Benefits of Truvada PrEP

If you take Truvada daily, this medication is highly effective at reducing your chance of HIV infection. It is still advisable to use it in combination with safe sex methods such as the use of condoms. Another notable benefit of this medication is that it also reduces the risk of HIV infection from other sources such as the use of needles.

What is PrEP?

Is Truvada a vaccine?

No. When using Truvada EU and EU patients should be aware that this medication does not work the same way as a vaccine. A vaccine trains the body’s immune system to fight off infection for a long-term period. Truvada requires that you take it during times of risk of HIV infection. Unlike a vaccine, this medication no longer provides a protection level after you stop taking it.

What should I do if I miss a dose?

If you notice that you have missed a dose within 12 hours of the time that you usually take your medication, take the tablet as soon as possible and take the next dose at the usual time. If it has been 12 hours or more, wait and take the next dose at the usual time.
