Basic Information On Viramune
Viramune is an antiretroviral drug used for the treatment of HIV-1 infection. It belongs to the family of antiretroviral called non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor. It works by preventing the action of the enzyme reverse transcriptase in viruses which are responsible for the formation of DNA strands as it multiplies. The Viramune drug is not effective against HIV -2 infections due to incompatibility in the mode of action of this drug on reverse transcriptase enzyme found in that type of infection.
Side Effects/Precautions For Viramune

Many people also experience changes to the shape and size of their body parts when on treatment with brand or generic Viramune: women have changes around their waist and chest, while men mostly have fat accumulation on their arms and face. Serious side effects like flu and fever with skin rashes indicate signs of infections, which HIV individuals are susceptible to, due to compromised immunity.
