Emtriva -- HIV Drug Treatment

If you have been diagnosed with HIV or AIDS, your healthcare provider may recommend a drug called Emtriva® (emtricitabine) as part of your treatment plan. This prescription medication is typically taken once a day, and it belongs to a group of medications known as nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). Some of the most common side effects of this drug include insomnia, dizziness, and diarrhea; however, most people tolerate it well.
 
This product is not intended to be used alone. Instead, it is meant for use as part of an HIV "cocktail." These cocktails usually consist of three or four (or sometimes even five) different HIV medications.
