Truvada (Emtricitabine/Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate)and/or alternatives
Basic Information On Truvada
Truvada is an anti-HIV medicine which belongs to the drug category called “nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor”. It is used to treat HIV infection (human immunodeficiency virus). It is a combination of many antiviral medicines. The Truvada drug is always used in adjunct therapy with other anti-HIV drugs. It stops the HIV from changing the genetic material of healthy CD4 cells. It helps control the infection by slowing down the growth of HIV virus and decreasing the amount of existing virus. It is most effective when it is maintained at a constant level in the body. This medication is not a cure for HIV, nor does it prevent the HIV infection from passing onto others. It received approval for treating HIV, in August 2004.
Precautions / Side Effects Of Truvada
The active chemical ingredients in Truvada are Emtricitabine and Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate. It can cause common side effects like joint pains, dizziness, muscle pain, nausea, sleeping problems, inflammation of the liver and diarrhea. These side effects may indicate build up of acid in the blood. Brand or generic Truvada can also cause liver complications like hepatotoxicity, with liver enlargement (hepatomegaly), and fat in the liver (steatosis). These liver disorders are indicated by dark colored urine, light colored stools, and yellowing of skin or eyes. You should undergo regular blood tests to check your kidneys. Truvada may also change your body fat.
Emtricitabine and Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate can interact with other medications such as: ATRIPLA (efavirenz 600 mg/emtricitabine 200 mg/tenofovir DF 300 mg), EMTRIVA, Combivir (lamivudine/zidovudine), VIREAD, Epzicom (abacavir sulfate/lamivudine), Epiviror Epivir-HBV (lamivudine). These medications contain similar active ingredients as Truvada. Brand or generic Truvada should not be taken with HEPSERA (adefovir dipivoxil). This medication may also cause skin problems like spots and freckles.
The recommended Truvada dosage is one 200/300 mg tablet taken daily. One tablet contains 200 mg of emtricitabine and 300 mg of tenofovir disoproxil fumarate. You can take it orally with or without food. You would need special dose adjustment if you have severe renal impairment, with baseline creatinine clearance 30-49 ml/min. In such a case, you should take one dose every 24 hours. Your response to this medication and your renal function should be carefully monitored by your doctor to gauge the efficacy of the treatment. However, if you have only mild renal impairment, with creatinine clearance 50-80 mL/min, you may take one tablet daily without any adjustment. Your calculated creatinine clearance and serum phosphorus should be monitored daily.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
