Emtricitabine -- HIV Drug Information

Emtricitabine (Emtriva®), a prescription drug, is commonly prescribed in conjunction with other medications to treat HIV and AIDS. It comes in the form of a capsule and an oral solution (liquid). In most cases, emtricitabine is taken once a day. Dizziness, diarrhea, and rash are some of the most commonly reported side effects.
 
Because emtricitabine is not suitable for everyone, it's important to review the safety information for this HIV drug with your healthcare provider before starting treatment. For example, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other health issues you may have, such as hepatitis B, kidney disease, or a blood disorder.
