Genvoya Warnings/Precautions


Test for HBV before starting antiretroviral therapy. Discontinuation of emtricitabine and/or tenofovir DF may be associated with severe acute exacerbations of hepatitis B. Closely monitor patients co-infected with HBV and HIV for several months after stopping treatment; if appropriate, anti-HBV therapy may be warranted (esp. in those with advanced liver disease or cirrhosis). Assess SCr (monitor closely if >0.4mg/dL), estimated CrCl, urine glucose, urine protein in all patients, and serum phosphorus (in chronic kidney disease) before initiating and during therapy. Discontinue if significant renal dysfunction or evidence of Fanconi syndrome develops. Suspend therapy if lactic acidosis or hepatotoxicity (eg, hepatomegaly, steatosis) occurs. Pregnancy (esp. during 2nd & 3rd trimesters), nursing mothers: not recommended.
