Belongs to Category

How It Works

Descovy is a combination medication containing two active ingredients: emtricitabine and tenofovir alafenamide. Emtricitabine and tenofovir alafenamide are both nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) that work by interfering with the action of an enzyme called reverse transcriptase, which is essential for the replication of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). By inhibiting reverse transcriptase, Descovy helps to reduce the amount of HIV in the body and improve immune function.
