Why is this medication prescribed?

The combination of efavirenz, lamivudine, and tenofovir is used to treat HIV in adults and children. Efavirenz is in a class of medications called non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs). Lamivudine and tenofovir are in a class of medications called nucleoside and nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). They work by decreasing the amount of HIV in the body. Although efavirenz, lamivudine and tenofovir will not cure HIV, these medications may decrease your chance of developing acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and HIV-related illnesses such as serious infections or cancer. Taking these medications along with practicing safer sex and making other lifestyle changes may decrease the risk of getting or transmitting the HIV virus to other people.

How should this medicine be used?

The combination of efavirenz, lamivudine, and tenofovir comes as a tablet to take by mouth. It is usually taken once a day on an empty stomach (at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal). Take efavirenz, lamivudine, and tenofovir at around the same time every day. Taking efavirenz, lamivudine, and tenofovir at bedtime may make certain side effects less bothersome. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take efavirenz, lamivudine, and tenofovir exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

Continue to take efavirenz, lamivudine, and tenofovir even if you feel well. Do not stop taking efavirenz, lamivudine, and tenofovir without talking to your doctor. If you stop taking efavirenz, lamivudine, and tenofovir even for a short time, or skip doses, the virus may become resistant to medications and may be harder to treat.

The combination of efavirenz, lamivudine, and tenofovir is available with brand names of Symfi and Symfi Lo. These two brands contain different amounts of the same medication, and cannot be substituted for each other. Be sure that you receive only the brand of efavirenz, lamivudine, and tenofovir that was prescribed for you by your doctor. Ask your pharmacist if you have any questions about the type of efavirenz, lamivudine, and tenofovir you were given.

Ask your pharmacist or doctor for a copy of the manufacturer's information for the patient.
