Trifluridine (also called trifluorothymidine or TFT) is an anti-herpesvirus antiviral drug, used primarily on the eye. It was sold under the trade name Viroptic by Glaxo Wellcome, now merged into GlaxoSmithKline. The brand is now owned by Monarch Pharmaceuticals, which is wholly owned by King Pharmaceuticals.

Trifluridine was approved for medical use in 1980.[1] It is also a component of the anti-cancer drug trifluridine/tipiracil, which is taken by mouth.
