Emtricitabine is an antiviral medication with several applications, but most prominent by far is its use in preventing or treating HIV in children and adults. Coming in at a distant second is off-label use in treating Hepatitis B infections.

The medication is a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI), meaning it blocks production of an enzyme called reverse transcriptase. In preventative treatment this action prevents the virus from gaining a foothold, while those who buy Emtricitabine to treat an existing infection find the medication slows progression of the disease and bolsters the immune system.

This medication is more commonly sold under the brand name Emtriva. It's also possible to buy Emtricitabine in combination with other drugs, such as with tenofovir in Truvada, with tenofovir and efavirenz in Sustiva, and with tenofovir, cobicistat, and elvitegravir in Stribild. All of these medications are commonly used in prevention and/or treatment of HIV.

Emtricitabine for HIV

Patients usually buy Emtricitabine on its own only for preventative measures, and even there it is not as effective as taking it with tenofovir or other medications. Patients who already have HIV will surely be taking other medications. These other medications will influence dosage to some extent, as will patient age and weight.

The standard daily dose for adults in both preventative and HIV infection is 200 mg, taken once per day.

Taken to prevent HIV infection, the medication is useful in straight, gay, and bisexual individuals who regularly:

  • Have unprotected sex with multiple partners;
  • Have sex with a partner who engages in sex with multiple partners;
  • Who do not have HIV but has a partner who does;
  • Who use, or have sex with a partner who uses, unclean needles.

In patients who have HIV already the medication slows progression of the disease, buying patients time and generally elevating quality of life. As an added benefit, patients who have HIV are less likely to spread it to others while taking Emtricitabine; the risk of doing so approaches zero if condoms are also used.

Emtricitabine is generally only prescribed after an HIV test has been administered, even when its use is as a preventative measure. Treatment may continue for as long as it provides benefit, assuming no serious adverse reactions develop.

Emtricitabine for Hepatitis B Infection

Less commonly patients may buy Emtricitabine as a Hepatitis B treatment, with or without the presence of HIV, though it is particularly beneficial in HIV patients at times. Note, however, that patients who have HIV should not take Emtricitabine without being prescribed an antiretroviral drug.

The standard daily dose for Hepatitis B infection is also 200 mg, taken once per day. Dosage may be adjusted according to kidney function.

Warnings & Side Effects

Side effects associated with Emtricitabine are quite unusual, with the majority of them being mild and transient, including:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Rash
  • Insomnia

Black patients almost exclusively reported hyperpigmentation of the palms of the hands or soles of the feet. Fewer than 2 percent of individuals reported hyperpigmentation.

More rare, but also more serious, is hepatotoxicity or lactic acidosis. Warning signs include:

  • Dark urine
  • Pale stools
  • Severe stomach pain
  • Loss of appetite
  • Yellow skin or eyes
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Severe weakness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion

The above symptoms call for immediate medical attention.
