Viread for HIV/AIDS

If you have HIV or AIDS, you may benefit from the prescription drug Viread® (tenofovir disoproxil fumarate). Viread is currently the only drug in a class of HIV medications known as nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NtRTIs). The medication works by blocking a process that the HIV virus needs in order to multiply. This product is approved for use in adults and children over the age of two.
 
Viread comes in tablet and oral powder form. It is usually taken by mouth once daily, although if you have kidney disease, you may need to take it less frequently.
