Normalize with Mytesi
1 in 5 people living with HIV suffer from chronic diarrhea. Mytesi is the only FDA-approved treatment
that can provide sustained relief from noninfectious diarrhea.1
Mytesi can effectively reduce noninfectious diarrhea. It is a non-opiate derivative and has a very low risk of causing constipation.
No significant drug interactions
Mytesi is not systemically absorbed into the bloodstream, and it does not interact with other medications.
Indicated for people living with HIV
Mytesi does not affect viral load, and it is effective and safe to use long-term to provide symptomatic relief of HIV-related diarrhea.
Normalizing Your Gut
Chloride ion channels in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract maintain a balance of salts—including chloride (Cl–) ions—and water that allows normal stool formation.
Chloride ion (salt)
Chloride ion channel
Improper function of ion channels leads to an excess of salts and water within the GI tract, disrupting the normal balance and resulting in diarrhea.
Mytesi restores the balance of salts and water in the GI tract by normalizing improperly functioning chloride ion (Cl–) channels.
After 3-4 weeks, Mytesi can reduce the severity of watery bowel movements and provide sustained long term relief 1. In nonclincal studies, crofelemer, the active ingredient in Mytesi, does not slow down gut motility and is therefore less likely to cause constipation.
