What is the use of Ricovir Tenofovir Tablet?

Ricovir (Tenofovir) is an antiretroviral medicine that prevents human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) from multiplying in your body. Tenofovir is used to treat HIV, the virus that can cause acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

How Does Tenofovir Tablet Work?

When HIV infects a cell, it takes control of that cell. HIV then forces the cell to make many more copies of the virus. To make these copies, the cell uses proteins called enzymes. When the activity of these enzymes is reduced the production of HIV slows.

Tenofovir DF belongs to a class (group) of HIV drugs called nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). NRTIs block an HIV enzyme called reverse transcriptase. (An enzyme is a protein that starts or increases the speed of a chemical reaction.) By blocking reverse transcriptase, NRTIs prevent HIV from multiplying and can reduce the amount of HIV in the body.
