What is Truvada?

Truvada is an antiviral medicine. It works, among other things, for HIV infections. Truvada is based on two active substances: tenofovir and emtricitabine. These drugs inhibit the enzyme that causes the body to create new HIV viruses. As a result, the virus cannot expand. You can order Truvada online through the pharmacies that work with Dokteronline.com.

What is this medicine used for?

Doctors prescribe Truvada (preventively) for HIV infections. In this condition, the white blood cells are affected, which weakens the defenses. HIV is an STD. The virus spreads through contaminated blood, sperm, and vaginal fluid, but also through the use of contaminated injection needles or medical devices. A pregnant woman can also infect her baby during childbirth or breastfeeding. If the HIV virus is not stopped with medication, it may ultimately develop into the disease AIDS. The body then has no working immune system at all and can no longer defend itself against viruses and bacteria. A fairly simple infection can be life-threatening. Truvada inhibits the growth of the virus in the blood. As a result, the level of white blood cells can be maintained and the natural defenses are protected.

How to use Truvada?

Truvada is usually used in combination with other HIV-inhibiting medicines. Take the tablet with some water. If you have trouble swallowing the tablet, you can also crush it first and then mix the powder with water or juice. Always take Truvada during the meal. If you forget to take Truvada, please do so as soon as you think of it, unless it is almost time for your next tablet (within 12 hours). If you are too late, skip the missed tablet and continue with the usual schedule. Never take a double dose to compensate for the forgotten tablet. Never stop using Truvada without consulting a doctor.
