How Tenvir L Tablet works
Lamivudine prevents the multiplication of HIV virus in human cells. Thus stops the HIV virus from producing new viruses.
Anyone with a history of hypersensitivity to lamivudine or tenofovir disoproxil fumarate should avoid Tenvir-L.
Adverse effects commonly reported by patients taking Tenvir-L include:
- peripheral neuropathy
- abdominal cramps
- depressive disorders
Less common side effects that have been documented are:
- renal impairment or failure
- tubular necrosis
- fanconi syndrome
- lactic acidosis
- proximal tubulopathy
Tenvir-L may cause other side effects including decreased bone density and redistribution of body fat. Inform your doctor is you noticed any changes in your health after starting Tenvir-L.
Anyone with a creatinine clearance less than 50 ml/min must not take Tenvir-L. Worsening of hepatic symptoms have been documented in patients with hepatitis B after they stopped taking Tenvir-L. For patients with hepatitis C, co-administering interferon alfa and ribavirin with Tenvir-L can heighten risks for hepatic decompensation. Use of didanosine is not recommended when beginning Tenvir-L because it can hinder Tenvir-L’s effectiveness.
Taking nephrotoxic drug therapies with Tenvir-L can heighten risks of renal impairment. Drugs associated with peripheral neuropathy or pancreatitis including alcohol, sulfonamides, zalcitabine, stavudine, dapsone, isoniazid, and IV pentamidine should be taken with extreme precaution or avoided. Tenvir-L may heighten the risks of didanosine associated side effects. Lopinavir/ritonavir and atazanavir may worsen side effects associated with Tenvir-L. Tenvir-L should be discontinued if this occurs. Atazanavir without ritonavir must not be administered with Tenvir-L
Pregnancy & Lactation
Laboratory tests suggests that Tenvir-L can contaminate breast milk. Women with HIV should not breastfeed to prevent the risk of transmitting HIV to their infant.
Patients who take more Tenvir-L than prescribed should get medical attention right away for close monitoring. Activated charcoal can be used to purge the excess drug.
Frequently asked questions about Tenofovir
Is tenofovir a NRTI?
Yes. Tenofovir is an antiviral drug belonging to class nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs)
What is tenofovir/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate used for/ What does tenofovir treat?
Tenofovir is an antiviral drug used in combination with other drugs in the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections. It may also be used in very limited cases of long-term infections of liver caused by hepatitis B virus
Is Viraday safe/ effective?
Viraday is a trade name for fixed-dose combination of drugs efavirenz, emtricitabine, and tenofovir. It is safe and effective if used at prescribed doses for the prescribed duration as advised by your doctor
Is viraday the same as atripla?
Yes. Viraday and atripla are trade names for fixed-dose combination of drugs efavirenz, emtricitabine, and tenofovir. They are used in the treatment of HIV
How does tenofovir work?
Tenofovir is an antiviral drug belonging to class nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). By the virtue of its structure that closely resembles the natural structure of viral DNA, tenofovir incorporates itself into the viral DNA. By doing so, it blocks the activity of an important viral enzyme reverse transcriptase which is involved in the replication of viral DNA, a process essential for survival of the virus
Does tenofovir cause hair loss?
Hair loss is not a known side effect of tenofovir
Does tenofovir cause lipodystrophy?
Tenofovir may cause lipodystrophy (build up or loss of body fat) especially in elderly patients with HIV. Physical examination of fat redistribution and monitoring of blood levels of lipids and sugar may be advised in elderly
How does tenofovir cause renal toxicity/renal failure?
Tenofovir is predominantly excreted by the kidneys. The part of kidneys involved in its excretion is called the proximal tubule. Studies indicate that tenofovir accumulation in the proximal tubule due to interaction with other drugs (eg. ritonavir) or prolonged use is responsible for kidney damage (renal toxicity). The kidney damage may then progress to kidney failure
Does tenofovir cure hepatitis B/ Is viraday effective/does viraday work?
Yes. Viraday is effective against human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and some cases of hepatitis B. It is safe if used at prescribed doses for the prescribed duration as advised by your doctor.
