TENVIR tablets are indicated in combination with other antiretroviral agents for the treatment of HIV-1 infection.
Tenvir tablets are a fixed dose combination treatment for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection in adults over age 18. Tenvir tablets are used combination with other medications that have a different mechanism of action to the components in Tenvir, and are used to treat patients with HIV infection who have either already received treatment with other medications for HIV or as first line therapy for treatment-inexperienced patients. HIV impairs the immune system by attacking specific immune cells called CD4+ cells that are involved in fighting infection and this can lead to opportunistic life-threatening infection (infections that would not normally be harmful); also if too many CD4+ cells are destroyed this can result in acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Tenvir tablets prevent or slow down the ability of HIV to replicate and spread, which keeps the amount virus down to a low level and this results in an increase in CD4 cell numbers, so that the immune system can recover, reducing the risk of disease progression.
