Introduction of Forstavir EM Tablet

Forstavir EM Tablet is a combination of two antiretroviral medicines containing emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate. It is used in the treatment of adults and adolescents (aged 12 years and older with a body weight of at least 35 kg) infected with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus type 1. It also helps control HIV infection and prevent the development of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

Forstavir EM does not completely cure HIV infection. It will reduce the progression of a chronic, potentially life-threatening condition known as acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and other HIV-related conditions. This tablet will work by stopping the virus from multiplying in the body. ​

Before taking Forstavir EM Tablet talk to your doctor about the potential risks and benefits of taking this medication, as well as any other questions or concerns you may have. It is also important to let your doctor know if you have any pre-existing diseases or are taking any medications, vitamins, supplements, or herbal medicines.

Forstavir EM Tablet should be taken with or without food. It is important to follow your doctor's instructions for taking this tablet and to continue taking the medication as prescribed, even if you feel well. Do not stop taking this tablet or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor.

Uses of Forstavir EM Tablet

​Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection (HIV): It is used in the treatment of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection that attacks and weakens the immune system. It is spread through contact with certain bodily fluids, such as blood, semen, vaginal fluids, and breast milk, from an infected person.

Pre-exposure prophylaxis: It is used in combination with safe-sex practices to reduce the risk of sexually acquired HIV infection in adults at high risk.

Benefits of Forstavir EM Tablet

Forstavir EM Tablet is a combination of antiretroviral medicine that fights human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection by reducing the amount of the virus in the blood. It is used in antiretroviral combination therapy for the treatment of HIV infection. Forstavir EM Tablet reduces the amount of HIV virus in your body and keeps it low. It also increases CD4 cell counts. CD4 cells are a type of white blood cell that plays an essential role in maintaining a healthy immune system to help fight infection. Response to treatment with Forstavir EM Tablet varies between patients. Your doctor or healthcare provider will be monitoring the effectiveness of your treatment. Forstavir EM Tablet may improve your condition, but it does not cure your HIV infection. HIV infection is a disease spread by contact with blood or sexual contact with an infected individual. Treatment with Forstavir EM Tablet has not been shown to eliminate the risk of passing HIV infection on to others by sexual contact or by blood transfer. Therefore, you must continue to take appropriate precautions to avoid giving the virus to others.

How Forstavir EM Tablet Works?

Forstavir EM Tablet contains two active substances, emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil. Both of these active substances are antiretroviral medicines which are used to treat HIV infection. Emtricitabine is a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor and tenofovir is a nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitor. However, both are generally known as NRTIs and they work by interfering with the normal working of an enzyme (reverse transcriptase) that is essential for the virus to reproduce itself.
