its a large white tablet imprinted m152. ## what the are active ingredients of an oval shaped white tablet imprinted M 152 on it. state the various uses and side effects. thank you. ## What does m152cure ## Hello everyone, Based on my research, a white capsule-shaped film coated tablet imprinted with “M 152” on one side and blank on the other side, is identified as an HIV-1 medication containing the following active ingredients: Efavirenz 600mg + Lamivudine 300mg + Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg. It doesn't say that it's intended to cure anything, but rather "treat" the condition, like most prescription medications. And as far as side effects are concerned, I've actually seen some sites list two pages worth of symptoms for this particular medication....

1 Reply RSS
Hi, my bf is hiv positive and i am hiv negative. We use protection during intimacy and try to be as safe as possible. However the other day the condom broke. We went to the doctor and i was given eflaten which i took within 72 hours and still on it til now. I just want to know, does this drug prevent someone from being infected with hiv if they are negative and taken within 72 hours? ## Hello, Babs! How are you? Yes, some antibiotics and antivirals, such as this medication can help prevent HIV infection, though there are never any guarantees. The U.S. FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, headache and stomach pain. How long did your doctor tell you to take it?

What will happen to my partner if we are being intimate while I'm using eflaten tabs? ## Hello, Sathizone! How are you? Nothing, medication that you take won't have any effect on your partner. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Efavirenz as possible including nausea, headache, depression, back pain and abdominal pain. Is there anything else I can help with? ## What will happen if I skip two days not taking my eflaten. ## Hi, I slept with a girl and we were using condoms; as of which she started bleeding. I don't trust her. Will I get HIV after 72 hrs? I bought Eflaten tables after 2 hrs. Will they help me?

Hi I am hiv positive and on tribuss medication, I now have a 9 weeks son who was born negative and was given nevirapine at birth till he was 6weeks then given Iltrim.I was breastfeeding exclusively till he was 2weeks then gave him breastfeed, formula and cereal because he was not getting full on breast milk only does this mean that my son is now hiv positive even though I take my treatment religiously and gave him his ? ## Hello, Nikkie! How are you? No, mixed feeding would not affect that. You both just need to continue to take the prescribed medications, until he is done breastfeeding, as reported by the NIH. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you so so much for your honesty, I also have the same problem. I was even afraid of giving my daughter a flu medicine because we ...
