 1  HIV Osteoporosis, another disease that keeps on giving. Don't. Please. Don't. Take. This. Young men in their 20's get osteo! Old ladies aren't the only ones who get badly brittle bones. I have much distrust and contempt for pharmaceutical corps who benefit by destroying lives. F 57 10 years

VIREAD  (TENOFOVIR DISOPROXIL FUMARATE):  Tenofovir 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. Tenofovir belongs to a class of drugs known as nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). Tenofovir is not a cure for HIV infection. To decrease your risk of spreading HIV disease to others, do all of the following: (1) continue to take all HIV medications exactly as prescribed by your doctor, (2) always use an effective barrier method (latex or polyurethane condoms/dental dams) during all sexual activity, and (3) 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. Tenofovir is also used to treat a certain type of liver infection called chronic hepatitis B infection. It helps to decrease the amount of hepatitis B virus in your body by interfering with virus growth.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
