Being informed on how to protect and treat the virus is very important than getting additional medications due to adverse reactions that may further damage your health. Read on as we cover in-depth and helpful usage of tenofovir pills, its mechanism of action as well as how the pills remain effectiveness in your body.
Being infected with HIV-1 doesn’t mean it’s the end of your life. Most infected people live with thoughts that they can’t live to their full potential to pursue their life goals (or be productive) and enjoy their precious life. Truth is, HIV/AIDS is manageable and effectively treatable.
With highly cost-effective antiretroviral meds, you can find comfort and lead a happy healthier life. Antiretroviral meds such as Tenofovir kill the virus replication and help the immune system gain the defense you need to fight infections or viruses that might enter your body.
Like any other medication, it’s advisable to first check your health prior to using tenofovir medication. A doctor should thoroughly access your health for the presence of any ailments that may interfere with the normal functioning of tenofovir tablets.
It’s also important to understand how this drug is used (dosage information), its precautions and warnings as well as drug interactions. That’s what we do at HIVPrEP. Giving you the right information for various medications to help you stay safe and healthy.
In fighting the replication (virus increase) of HIV-1 and HBV infection, tenofovir used with other drugs as a combination to provide an effective mechanism to fight the virus from replication and giving your body immune system strength to fight the infection .
Drug combinations include meds from these drug classes:
It’s the most needed drug in everyday health due to its overwhelming efficacy and tolerability. It’s a drug that’s characterized by fewer side effects. To make it most tolerable, a patient must strictly adhere to the doctor’s (or healthcare provider’s) advice on how to use the pills and what should be avoided to limit the chances of attaining drug reactions that may alter how the pills (including other drugs) perform in fighting the virus.
Then what’s tenofovir mechanism of action? Having been hydrolyzed to tenofovir, it’s then phosphorylated to tenofovir diphosphate. This molecule inhibits the pursuit of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase – a mechanism which HIV-1 virus uses to replicate – by blocking its action. When the processes of reverse transcriptase are blocked, the HIV-1 mechanism of action is terminated making it harder to replicate itself .
Though it doesn’t fully work as a curing drug, it ultimately limits the speed of virus multiplication by prohibiting nucleotides from being used by HIV-1 to create copies of itself. On the other hand, when the virus is kept from multiplying, CD4 cells are increased in numbers. The more the replication of CD4 cells, the more the body build up a strong immune system and the more your body stay healthier .
With a single dosage, tenofovir terminal elimination half-life is estimated to be 17 hours. This varies as the clearance of tenofovir is largely depended on the patient renal function.
