Product Details

Truvada in the United Kingdom is identical to Truvada in the United States. The strength of Truvada is also the same in both countries, however the packaging makes the strength look different. One ingredient in Truvada is Tenofovir, which is listed as 300mg on US packaging but 245mg on UK packaging. The reason for this is that the US measures the weight of the full salt Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate while the UK version measures the weight of Tenofovir Disoproxil (without the fumarate salt component). Both Truvada versions are absolutely identical.

Prescription Truvada (emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate) is a for the treatment of HIV-1 infection for people over 77 pounds. Truvada blocks the reverse transcriptase enzyme which is required by the HIV virus to replicate. Blocking this enzyme prevents the HIV virus from spreading in the body and causing further damage to the immune system and additional conditions and infections. Truvada, alongside with other HIV medicines will not cure HIV or AIDS. 

When Truvada is used to treat existing HIV infection, it is always given alongside of other HIV medicines.

A new indication of Truvada is to reduce the risk of getting HIV infections through sex. It must be taken every day alongside of safe sex practices.

The usual dose of Truvada is once per day with or without food, exactly as prescribed. Do not miss doses of Truvada or stop taking Truvada without talking with your physician.
