Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate is used in the treatment of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection.
Tenofovir can be used for a variety of other things that aren't covered in this pharmaceutical guide. If you've had hepatitis B before, it could resurface or worsen if you stop taking tenofovir. For several months, you may require liver function testing.
Change your dose or stop taking a medicine without consulting your doctor. If you are allergic to tenofovir, you should avoid taking it.
