Expert advice for Tavin Tablet

  • Do not take tenofovir if you are already taking medicines that contain tenofovir in combination with other drugs.
  • Do not take tenofovir with other drugs that can potentially damage your kidneys; especially adefovir (used in treatment of hepatitis B).
  • Contact your doctor immediately if you notice symptoms: deep and rapid breathing, drowsiness, urge to vomit (nausea), vomiting, muscle pain or weakness, numb or cold feeling in your arms and legs, stomach pain, fast or uneven heart rate, or feeling very weak or tired.

  • Contact your doctor immediately if you have symptoms: persistent urge of vomit (nausea), upper stomach pain, itching, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (abnormal liver function causing yellowing of the skin or eyes). These might indicate development of severe liver damage.
  • Decreases in bone mineral density can happen while taking tenofovir.
  • Do consult your doctor before taking tenofovir if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant.
  • Do not use tenofovir if you are breast-feeding.

Tenofovir is predominantly excreted by the kidneys. The part of kidneys involved in its excretion is called the proximal tubule.

The kidney damage may then progress to kidney failure
