Emtricitabine is one of several medications prescribed together in order to keep the HIV virus from spreading in infected persons. This medication doesn’t control HIV-related illnesses, but it slows down the HIV virus’ ability to replicate itself.

Side Effects/Warnings

This medication doesn’t stop HIV from being transmitted to other people. Patients who are on this medication should continue to use protection if they engage in sexual activity and should not share needles with other people.

Embtricitabine can cause severe liver damage and a potentially life-threatening condition called lactic acidosis. Patients who have liver disease should avoid using this medication. If you have stomach pain, nausea or brown urine while on this medication, consult your doctor immediately. You should also get immediate medical assistance if you feel severely dizzy while on Emtricitabine.
