Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate is an analogue of adenosine 5-monophosphate which is converted to tenofovir after hydrolysis after which tenofovir inhibits HIV-1 reverse transcriptase. Tenofovir competes with AMP as a substrate and competes to incorporate themselves into the DNA strand thus stops the replication of viral particles.  Lamivudine is an analogue that is phosphorylated to its active forms lamivudine triphosphate that is incorporated into the nucleotide and inhibits the action of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase. Efavirenz is a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase that blocks RNA and DNA dependant polymerase in HIV replication. Thus, the active HIV molecule becomes inactive and further reproduction and multiplication process is stopped.
