    PrEP (Emtricitabine/Tenofovir) is a generic version of Truvada, a branded medication that is commonly used to prevent HIV infections. PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis.

    PrEP (Emtricitabine/Tenofovir) can also be used alongside other HIV medications to help control HIV infections. It helps to decrease the amount of HIV in your body, allowing your immune system to work better. Emtricitabine/Tenofovir also lowers the chance of getting HIV-based complications and helps with improving the quality of life of people with HIV.

    This medication is a combination of two different drugs. These are emtricitabine and tenofovir. Both of these drugs are nucleotide reverse-transcriptase inhibitors, also known as NRTIs.

    It is important to note that PrEP medication should not be used by itself to control an HIV infection. If you use it on its own it will be much less effective than if it is used in combination with at least one other HIV medication.

    Emtricitabine/Tenofovir is not a cure for HIV infection, and it is not a guarantee of preventing HIV infections.

    PrEP HIV

    PrEP (Emtricitabine/Tenofovir) works by greatly reducing the chances of contracting the HIV virus provided it is taken daily and in conjunction with safe sex methods, such as condoms. PrEP combines two medications, emtricitabine and tenofovir, both of which are NRTIs. NRTIs work by inhibiting the enzyme in the body, reverse transcriptase, which is needed for the HIV virus to replicate in the body.

    PrEP Medication

    You should always read the medication guide that comes in the package for PrEP (Emtricitabine/Tenofovir) before you start using the medication. If you have questions or if you are not sure about something, you should ask your doctor before taking it.

    Emtricitabine/Tenofovir tablets are to be taken orally as directed by your doctor. Usually, this will be once daily, with or without a meal. If you are taking didanosine enteric-coated tablets alongside Emtricitabine/Tenofovir, take both medications either on an empty stomach or with a light meal. If you are taking the didanosine buffered tablets then you should take both drugs on an empty stomach.

    For the best results when using Emtricitabine/Tenofovir, take it at evenly spaced times. To help you remember to take your medication you should try and take it at the same time every day.

    PrEP Dosage

    You should always take the amount of PrEP (Emtricitabine/Tenofovir) that you have been instructed to by your doctor. The dosage of PrEP (Emtricitabine/Tenofovir) you are told to take will be based on your kidney function, medical condition, as well as your response to the treatment. Children may be prescribed a different dosage based on their weight.

    You must keep on taking Emtricitabine/Tenofovir and any other HIV medications you use exactly as prescribed by your doctor. You should never skip any doses. You should also not take more or less Emtricitabine/Tenofovir than prescribed, and you should not stop taking it, even for a short time, unless you have been told to do by your doctor. Doing so may cause the amount of virus to increase, make the infection more difficult to treat, or worsen side effects.
