Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) If you don’t have HIV but are at a high risk of contracting it, PrEP can be a way of reducing that likelihood. PrEP involves taking the pill Truvada every day.

If you take generic Truvada (Tenof EM tablets), as PrEP daily, the presence of the medication in your cell’s tissue can stop the virus from establishing itself and slow the spread of HIV in your body. When taken consistently (missing doses of Truvada decreases its efficacy), PrEP has been shown to reduce the risk of HIV infection in people who are at a high risk by up to 99%.Tenof EM tablets contain the active ingredients of Tenofovir (300 mg) + Emtricitabine (200 mg)Tenof EM is manufactured by Hetero Healthcare.
