Detailed Description

Ricovir-EM (Generic Truvada) PrEP is a prescription medicine for the following uses:

  • To treat HIV infection in adults and children who weigh at least 37 lb (17 kg). Ricovir-EM for HIV treatment is always used in combination with other HIV medicines. HIV medicines can’t cure HIV/AIDS, but taking a combination of HIV medicines (called an HIV treatment regimen) every day helps people with HIV live longer, healthier lives and also reduces the risk of HIV transmission.
  • To reduce the risk of HIV infection in adults and adolescents who weigh at least 77 lb (35 kg) who are HIV-negative and at high risk of getting HIV infection. This method to prevent HIV infection is called pre-exposure prophylaxis or PrEP. Ricovir-EM (Generic Truvada) PrEP should always be used in combination with safer sex practices, such as use of condomsRead the AIDSinfo fact sheet on PrEP for more information, including information on who should consider taking PrEP.

Ricovir-EM contains two different HIV medicines combined in one pill: emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate. Both medicines belong to the group of HIV drugs called nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). NRTIs block an HIV enzyme called reverse transcriptase. By blocking reverse transcriptase, the two drugs in combination prevent HIV from multiplying and can reduce the amount of HIV in the body.
