Ziagen contains the generic ingredient abacavir, which belongs to the class of drugs called nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI). Ziagen is used to treat human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection.
Doctors prescribe Ziagen in combination with other medications to reduce the HIV in your system as well as increase the CD4 cell count, which are a type of white blood cells important in fighting infection.
Ziagen works by interfering with the virus's ability to reproduce. Ziagen is used in combination with other anti-HIV drugs because the virus can become resistant to one drug very rapidly. This approach is known as combined antiretroviral therapy (cART) or highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART).
Ziagen oral solution is a yellowish, strawberry-banana flavoured liquid. The recommended dose of Ziagen oral solution is 600mg daily, taken orally, in addition to your other antiretroviral medications. You can take 15mL of oral solution twice daily OR 30mL once daily. It is important not to take a double dose to make up for a missed dose.
These may not be all the side effects of Ziagen 20mg/mL.
Do not take Ziagen if you have the HLA-B*5701 gene variation or moderate or severe liver disease. If you have a hypersensitivity to abacavir or any of the oral solution’s other ingredients, do not take this medication.
Tell your doctor about all your medicines and medical conditions especially if you have liver disease, heart problems or if you have been tested and know whether or not you have a gene variation called HLA-B*5701.
Store Ziagen oral solution between 15°C and 25°C. Keep out of the reach and sight of children. Do not take your medicine after the expiry date shown on the packaging.
HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. HIV gradually attacks the body’s immune system, specifically the CD4 cells (T cells), which help the immune system fight off infections and diseases. Gradually, HIV can destroy so many of these cells that the system is unable to fight off infections and disease. Symptoms of an HIV infection may include fever, mouth ulcers, sore throat, chills, rash, night sweats and fatigue. After the early stage of HIV infection, the disease moves into a stage called the clinical latency stage (also called “chronic HIV infection”). During this stage, HIV is still active but reproduces at very low levels. People who take medicine to treat HIV each day may be in this stage for several decades because treatment helps keep the virus in control. Eventually, so-called “opportunistic” infections or cancers take advantage of a very weak immune system and then the person has progressed to AIDS, the last stage of HIV infection. AIDS stands for acquired immune deficiency syndrome. AIDS is also referred to as advanced HIV infection or late-stage HIV. Someone with AIDS may develop a wide range of other health conditions including pneumonia, thrush, fungal infections, tuberculosis, toxoplasmosis and cytomegalovirus. Without treatment, people who are diagnosed with AIDS typically survive about three years. People with AIDS need medical treatment to prevent death. In the United States, the number of new HIV diagnoses fell 19% from 2005 to 2014.
