Basic Information On Selzentry
Selzentry is used for the treatment of CCR5-tropic human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1. The drug does not kill the existing virus but reduces the viral load by preventing it from multiplying in the body. The Selzentry drug is used with other anti- retroviral drugs to fight infection in individuals where the infection has adapted to medications. The anti-viral drug has affinity to plasma proteins like albumin. It is not a cure for AIDS but it is one of the medications used in antiretroviral therapy.
Side Effects/Precautions For Selzentry
Selzentry or Maraviroc may cause vomiting and nausea that usually do not persist for long. You may also feel consistently tired when you are on medication. Many people also experience changes in the shape and size of their body parts when on treatment with brand or generic Selzentry. Serious side effects like flu and fever with skin rash indicate signs of infections, which HIV individuals are susceptible to, due to compromised immunity. Rash is a side effect that may make your doctor decide to stop further treatment with this drug.
Maraviroc is not known to cause any harm to unborn babies. However, you must inform your doctor about pregnancy, as there is a risk of infecting the baby. Breastfeeding is not recommended for women infected with HIV, as the virus can be passed through breast milk. The use of other medication for cardiovascular problems, for liver and kidney diseases, precludes the use of brand or generic Selzentry tablets. Treatment for HIV is not mono therapy and happens with a combination therapy. Make sure that you mention all the medicines to your doctor every time there is a change in course of treatment.
The dosage of Selzentry is dependent on other medications that are given concomitantly. If an individual is taking potent CYP3A inhibitors, without or with CYP3A inducers, like delavirdine, the recommended dosage is 150 mg twice daily. When other medications like tipranavir, raltegravir and all NRTIs are taken, the dosage is increased to 300 mg twice daily. If Selzentry is prescribed with potent CYP3A inducers but without Potent CYP3A inhibitors, like efavirenz, rifampin and etravirine the dosage is increased to 600 mg twice a day. The drug can be taken with or without food.
