What is Vemlidy?

Vemlidy is a medicine prescribed to treat chronic (long-lasting) hepatitis B infection in adults who have some liver damage. It helps by stopping the virus from multiplying and spreading through your liver cells. This can lower the amount of virus in your body and can improve the condition of your liver. You take Vemlidy as a tablet that you swallow. You usually take it once a day with food.

Hepatitis B is an infection of your liver caused by the hepatitis B virus. You catch the virus from an infected person’s body fluids, most often from sharing intravenous needles or through sex. When you first get the infection (the acute phase), you can feel symptoms like abdominal pain, fever, nausea and vomiting, tiredness, a yellow tinge to your skin, and dark urine. It can take some time for you to feel any symptoms, sometimes 30 to 180 days after you’re infected. Some people may feel no symptoms at all.

Most people recover from the initial infection and clear the virus from their bodies. But around 10% of people don’t clear the virus and develop a long-term infection (chronic phase). If you have a chronic hepatitis B infection, you likely won’t feel any symptoms, but the virus can damage your liver over time. This damage can lead to compensated liver disease, where your liver becomes scarred, but still retains some to most of its function. If the liver damage progresses, it can result in cirrhosis (damage that leads to liver failure) and can cause liver cancer.

Vemlidy active ingredients

The active ingredient in Vemlidy is called tenofovir alafenamide. It’s an antiviral that stops viruses from multiplying in your body.

The hepatitis B virus copies itself and spreads through the cells of your liver. If it copies itself faster than your immune system can kill it, the virus persists and spreads, and can damage your liver. Vemlidy helps with this by preventing the virus from copying itself. The active ingredient tenofovir alafenamide interrupts a key stage of the replication process where the virus copies its genetic code inside your cells. This stops the virus from spreading and can improve your liver function.

Vemlidy side effects & Vemlidy drug interactions

The most common side effects caused by Vemlidy include:

  • Headaches
  • A cough
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Stomach pain
  • Back pain

In rare instances, Vemlidy can cause more serious side effects, including:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication
  • A potentially life-threatening condition called lactic acidosis caused by a build-up of lactic acid in your blood
  • Severe liver problems that can be fatal
  • New or worsening kidney problems, including kidney failure
  • A worsening of your hepatitis B infection

Your doctor will assess your risk of side effects against the benefits of taking Vemlidy. 

Vemlidy can interact with other medications. When this occurs it can change how Vemlidy and the other medications work and can make some side effects more likely. Tell your prescribing physician about all drugs you’re taking, including vitamins and dietary supplements, particularly:

  • Any medicines that have tenofovir alafenamide, tenofovir disoproxil, or adefovir dipivoxil in them
  • Any antibiotics that have rifabutin, rifampicin, or rifapentine in them
  • Antiviral medicines used to treat HIV, like ritonavir, lopinavir, or atazanavir
  • Anticonvulsants used to treat epilepsy, like carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine, phenobarbital, or phenytoin
  • Antifungal medicines, like ketoconazole or itraconazole
  • Herbal remedies used to treat depression and anxiety that contain St. John’s wort
