Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate Information
(te noe' fo veer)If you have hepatitis B virus infection (HBV; an ongoing liver infection) and you take tenofovir, your condition may suddenly worsen when you stop taking this medication. Tell your doctor if you have or have ever had HBV. Your doctor will examine you and order lab tests regularly for several months after you stop taking this medication to see if your HBV has worsened. Keep all appointments with your doctor and the laboratory. Your doctor will order certain lab tests before and during your treatment to check your body's response to tenofovir. Talk to your doctor about the risks of taking tenofovir.
Before taking tenofovir,
- tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to tenofovir, any other medications, or any of the ingredients in tenofovir tablets or oral powder. Ask your pharmacist for a list of the ingredients.
- tell your doctor and pharmacist what prescription and nonprescription medications, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products you are taking. Be sure to mention any of the following: antiviral medications such as acyclovir (Zovirax), adefovir (Hepsera), cidofovir (Vistide), ganciclovir (Cytovene, Vitasert), ledipasvir and sofosbuvir (Harvoni), valacyclovir (Valtrex), valganciclovir (Valcyte), and velpatasvir and sofosbuvir (Epclusa); aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn); gentamicin; other medications for HIV or AIDS including atazanavir (Reyataz, in Evotaz), darunavir (Prezista, in Prezcobix), didanosine (Videx), and lopinavir/ritonavir (in Kaletra); and other HIV medications containing tenofovir (Atripla, Complera, Descovy, Genvoya, Odefsey, Stribild, Truvada, Vemlidy). Your doctor may need to change the doses of your medications or monitor you carefully for side effects.

- tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding. If you become pregnant while taking tenofovir, call your doctor. You should not breastfeed if you are infected with HIV or if you are taking tenofovir.
