(em tri sit' uh bean) (te noe' fo veer)Emtricitabine and tenofovir may cause life-threatening damage to the liver and a potentially life-threatening condition called lactic acidosis (buildup of lactic acid in the blood) when used alone or in combination with other medications that treat human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Tell your doctor if you have or have ever had liver disease. If you experience any of the following symptoms, call your doctor immediately or get emergency medical treatment: nausea; vomiting; pain in the upper right part of your stomach; loss of appetite; flu-like symptoms; extreme tiredness; unusual bleeding or bruising; weakness; dizziness; lightheadedness; fast or irregular heartbeat; trouble breathing; dark yellow or brown urine; light-colored bowel movements; yellowing of the skin or eyes; feeling cold, especially in the arms or legs; or muscle pain that is different than any muscle pain you usually experience. Emtricitabine and tenofovir should not be used to treat hepatitis B virus infection (HBV; an ongoing liver infection). Tell your doctor if you have or think you may have HBV. Your doctor may test you to see if you have HBV before you begin your treatment with emtricitabine and tenofovir. If you have HBV and you take emtricitabine and tenofovir, your condition may suddenly worsen when you stop taking emtricitabine and tenofovir. Your doctor will examine you and order lab tests regularly for several months after you stop taking emtricitabine and tenofovir to see if your HBV has worsened. If you are taking emtricitabine and tenofovir to help prevent you from getting HIV, your doctor will test you to see if you have HIV before you begin your treatment. Tell your doctor if you have had any of the following symptoms in the last month or if you have any of the following symptoms while taking emtricitabine and tenofovir to help prevent you from getting HIV: fever, tiredness, joint or muscle pain, rash, night sweats, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, sore throat, swollen neck or groin area. Tell your doctor if you think you may have been exposed to HIV. Emtricitabine and tenofovir does not always prevent HIV. Your doctor will order HIV tests at least every 3 months while you are taking emtricitabine and tenofovir to see if you have become infected with HIV. Emtricitabine and tenofovir should only be used in combination with other medications to treat HIV. If emtricitabine and tenofovir are used alone to treat HIV, your condition may become more difficult to treat. Keep all appointments with your doctor and the laboratory. Your doctor will order certain tests to check your body's response to emtricitabine and tenofovir. Talk to your doctor about the risks of taking emtricitabine and tenofovir.
