Emtri Description

Emtri provides an antiretroviral regimen that works well, shows good activity in reducing your viral load, has few adverse side effects, and is not known to interact with other medications. Your doctor may prescribe Emtri or generic Lamivudine/Stavudine/Nevirapine as a first-line therapy for those with the human immunodeficiency virus, better known as HIV. There is no cure for HIV or AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome), but an early diagnosis and starting treatment as soon as possible can help you enjoy your life for many years. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that manufactures the brand product.

How Each Drug Performs to Lower Viral Load

When taken as directed, Lamivudine is converted in your body to Lamivudine Triphosphate. This active form mimics a similar chemical that is used by reverse transcriptase, an enzyme that makes new DNA. Without using the correct molecular building blocks, the active form of Lamivudine makes it impossible to create new DNA for the virus to be able to grow. Stavudine is taken to interfere with the HIV life cycle by blocking the same enzyme as Lamivudine so the genetic material needed to replicate viruses is unable to do so. Nevirapine is also effective at binding to and blocking the reverse transcriptase enzyme needed by the virus to grow. Together, Emtri reduces the amount of HIV in your blood.

Conditions Treated by Emtri

The goal of prescribing drugs for treating HIV is to lower the number of viruses in your blood effectively so you are able to carry on with your job, school, family events, and just relaxing and taking in every day. Sometimes the virus mutates in such a way that it could become immune to the effects of the medication you are taking. This is why you may be prescribed a combination of 2, 3, or 4 drugs in one as part of your HIV therapy. Should any of the viruses learn how to fight back, there is another drug working to make sure that HIV cannot get the upper hand.

Before Emtri is Prescribed to You

Ask your doctor about any risks of taking Emtri while you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and provide your doctor with a list of any OTC or Rx drugs you currently take or use, including alternative and complementary medicine. This will determine if Emtri is the right medication for you.

Emtri Precautions and Recommendations

No matter what drugs are prescribed for HIV, you can still infect others. Always take precautions to avoid exposing others to bodily fluids that can carry the virus. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any meds you are taking, including Emtri, without talking to your doctor. If you have unprotected intercourse with multiple partners or use IV drugs, you should be tested often for HIV as these are high-risk activities for contracting or spreading the disease.

As the viral numbers are decreasing, your white blood cell count will rise and be able to help fight other infections you may have along with HIV. This can cause you other symptoms that are unlike those of HIV so inform your doctor right away to explain any indicators that could mean you require antibiotics or additional drugs.
