Side Effects Are Often The Consumption Of Antiretroviral Therapy (ARV)?
night, I want to ask, I have a girl friend. I see him almost taking Efavirenz every day. What is the function of the drug? Thank you
Good night. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Efavirenz is a class of antiretroviral (ARV) therapy, which is an antivirus that is commonly used to suppress viral infections, one of which is HIV. The drug will reduce the amount of virus in the body so that the immune system will work optimally and help reduce the risk of complications. This drug will usually be combined with antiviral drugs from other groups for more optimal work.
But for the diagnosis of whether someone is correct with a diagnosis of HIV or not is a laboratory examination to see levels of the virus in the blood or the level of the immune system that is attacked by the virus.
To coexist with people with HIV / AIDS will actually not be a problem by noting that the exposure that occurs is through blood contact such as transfusions, exposure to wounds, same injections, sexual relations, mother to child transmission. While hand contact, sweat, saliva, toiletries are not a source of transmission. So that hanging out and making friends with people with HIV is safe and support them to take care of their health to the maximum extent possible
Thank you for your attention. May be useful.
