What is Vonaday (Telura)?
Vonaday is an antiretroviral medication formulated by Emcure Pharmaceuticals. Each tablet contains 600mg of efavirenz, 300mg of tenofovir, and 300mg of lamivudine. Combined, these components harm the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in the body whilst increasing the number of infection-fighting cells. This drug is indicated as part of antiretroviral therapy in patients affected by HIV. A bottle of Vonaday contains 30 film-coated tablets that must be stored at a consistent temperature of 25℃.
Vonaday is formulated with 3 different active ingredients, for the convenience of a single tablet dosage. The recommended dosage of Vonaday is 1 tablet per day. It is best to take this medication on an empty stomach, since food may increase the risk of adverse risks.
Vonaday is contraindicated in patients who are hypersensitive to efavirenz, tenofovir and/or lamivudine, as well as any other excipients in the formulation. Efavirenz may not be suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding patients.
