Tenofovir/Lamivudine/Efavirenz Description

Tenofovir/Lamivudine/Efavirenz is a generic anti-retroviral combination medication that is prescribed to manage human immunodeficiency virus, or the HIV infection. Tenofovir/Lamivudine/Efavirenz generic is a fixed dose combination of three different antiviral drugs. A combination of several anti-HIV medicines is required to fight HIV because the virus can become resistant to one agent very quickly. This is known as combined antiretroviral therapy (cART) or highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). This medication is not a cure for HIV or AIDS, but it can reduce your viral load. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Each of the 3 Active Ingredients Work

Tenofovir is classed as a nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NtRTI) and it acts similar to Lamivudine and other NRTIs so viral replication is inhibited. Lamivudine is called a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI) and its job is to block the action of a particular enzyme called reverse transcriptase and the HIV virus needs this enzyme to reproduce. Efavirenz is a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) and targets the reverse transcriptase enzyme so it is unable to change the viral RNA into healthy DNA in order to create new viruses. The combined actions of these HIV drugs results in lower numbers of the human immunodeficiency virus but this is not a cure for HIV.

How Retroviruses Work

HIV belongs to the class of retroviruses. It can be transmitted sexually, or when you come in contact with the body fluids of an infected individual. The viral cells enter your immune cells and multiply there. They escape by rupturing the membrane of the immune cells and are ready to infect more cells. This leads to severe immunodeficiency, and increases your risk of serious secondary infections and cancer. Although there is no cure for HIV, proper medications can help manage the disease. You can live for decades with the right treatment and avoid the risk of the infection advancing to AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome).
