HIV medication has been discovered to decrease the amount of Human immunodeficiency virus in the body. These medications can also help with antiviral drugs; these effectively prevent the multiplication of the virus in the body and strengthen the immune system to fight against the disease.

Tenvir EM for HIV

Tenvir EM is a combination drug consisting of two active pharmaceutical ingredients, namely, Emtricitabine and Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate. Both are antiviral drugs and are specially prescribed to treat HIV infection and to reduce the chances of getting an infection. For HIV treatment, this combination drug is given along with other HIV drugs to prevent the virus (HIV) from spreading or multiplying in the body. It is also effective in preventing AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome).  HIV is known to weaken the immune system by specifically attacking the CD4+ cells. These cells are required to fight infection and disease. Once these cells are damaged, it can lead to life-threatening infections. If the damage is in excess, it can result in AIDS. Tenvir EM is a medicine that effectively prevents the multiplication as well as the spread of the virus in the body, keeping the virus down to low levels to help the CD4+ cells. This ultimately results in recovering and reduction in the disease progression.

This antiretroviral agent should always be used with safer sex practice to reduce the chances of getting infected. It is specially made for adults who are at high risk of getting an infection. High-risk population includes male-female or male-male partners, where one of each partner is HIV infected. Also, avoid using or sharing needles with others as the virus can transfer through blood transfusion via needles.

The actives in the medication

Tenvir- EM is composed of two active ingredients that are Emtricitabine and Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate. They work against HIV by inhibiting the enzyme required by the virus to multiply and make copies of it. Both are equally effective in controlling the HIV infection, thereby improving a patient’s quality of life. These pharmaceutical agents lower your risk of complications associated with HIV such as cancers, or new infections. Though, the combination drug is not a cure for HIV and does not prevent the spread of HIV through blood contamination or making sexual contacts without using contraceptive measures.

If you have any doubt about how to use the medication, consider consulting your physician. Without having words with your physician, you are not allowed to change or stop the medication. You are not supposed to take less of this drug than prescribed.  Skipping or changing doses with the approval of the physician can cause the amount of virus to increase in the body or make the infection more difficult to treat.
