Descovy is used with other HIV medications to help control HIV infection. It helps to decrease the amount of HIV in your body so your immune system can work better. This lowers your chance of getting HIV complications (such as new infections, cancer) and improves your quality of life.emtricitabine and tenofovir alafenamide. Emtricitabine is called a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor, while tenofovir alafenamide is called a nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitor. They are often called NRTIs. Descovy should not be used by itself to help control HIV infection. Doing so can make your treatment less effective. Use combination treatment with at least one other HIV medication. Descovy is also approved in the US to help prevent HIV infection in people who have a high risk for infection. Some things that increase risk include having a partner infected with HIV, having unprotected sex, having multiple sex partners, infection with a sexually transmitted disease-STD, or use/abuse of drugs or alcohol. Emtricitabine/tenofovir alafenamide is not a cure for HIV infection. To decrease your risk of spreading HIV disease to others, continue to take all HIV medications exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Use an effective barrier method (latex or polyurethane condoms/dental dams) during sexual activity as directed by your doctor. Do not share personal items (such as needles/syringes, toothbrushes, and razors) that may have contacted blood or other body fluids. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.

Your doctor will perform laboratory tests before starting Descovy and periodically during treatment (every 3 months) to make sure that you do not have HIV infection. Using Descovy will not always prevent HIV infection. To get the most benefit from it, take Descovy exactly as directed, and follow all prevention actions. (See also Uses section.) Tell your doctor right away if you have any signs of HIV infection (such as sore throat that doesn't go away, tiredness, fever, night sweats, diarrhea, joint/muscle aches, enlarged lymph nodes).
How to Use Descovy
Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start taking Descovy and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

It is very important to keep taking Descovy (and other HIV medications) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not skip any doses. For the best effect, take Descovy at evenly spaced times. To help you remember, take Descovy at the same time every day. Do not take more or less of Descovy than prescribed or stop taking it (or other HIV medicines) even for a short time unless directed to do so by your doctor.
