Complera (Emtricitabine/Rilpivirine/Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate)

Drug:Complera Tablet
ManufacturerGilead Sciences
Dosage:200 mg/25 mg/300 mg

Complera contains 3 medicines, Emtriva (emtricitabine), Edurant (rilpivirine) and Viread (tenofovir disoproxil fumarate [tenofovir DF]), combined in one pill. Complera is used as a complete regimen to treat people with HIV infection. Complera helps block HIV reverse transcriptase, a chemical in your body (enzyme) that is needed for HIV to multiply. Complera lowers the amount of HIV in the blood which in turn lowers the chance of infections that happen when your immune system is weak (opportunistic infections). Complera may also help to increase the number of T cells (CD4+ cells), which help fight against HIV infection. Complera does not cure HIV infection or AIDS. People taking Complera may still get opportunistic infections (infections that develop because the immune system is weak) or other conditions that happen with HIV infection. Complera is for adults age 18 and older. Complera has not been studied in children under age 18 or in adults over age 65. Always take Complera with food. It is very important that you see your doctor regularly while taking Complera. Complera does not reduce the risk of passing HIV to others through sexual contact or blood contamination. Continue to practice safe sex by using latex or polyurethane condom or other barrier to lower the chance of sexual contact with semen, vaginal secretions or blood and do not use or share needles.
