Full information about Retrovir

Basic Information On Retrovir

Retrovir has three beneficial properties. It prevents human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) cells from proliferating in the body. It averts acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) by treating HIV. Lastly, in pregnant women suffering from HIV, Retrovir helps to ensure that the virus is not passed on to the fetus. The drug contains a synthetic nucleoside analogue, which is phosphorylated on entering the cells and terminates the DNA chain. Thereby, reverse transcriptase is inhibited. In all these cases, it is necessary to administer Retrovir in combination with other antiretroviral drugs. Many drugs, including Retrovir, have teratogenic effect, that is, they can hinder the growth of the fetus. Alternate methods are to be explored, before this medicine is thought of for use by pregnant women and the therapy may be postponed if the mother’s own need can wait. Planned dosage regimen is essential, if this medicine is used during pregnancy.

Precautions/ Side Effects For Retrovir

Brand or generic Retrovir contains zidovudine, a pyrimidine nucleoside analogue. Combined with other antiretroviral medication, Retrovir acts to delay progress of AIDS, increases CD4+ cell count, and decreases HIV-1 RNA in plasma. The reactions and cross-reactions with other medications that you may be currently using have to be evaluated, for safe use. It is not advisable to use this drug, in combination with Doxorubicin, Stavudine or Ribavirin. Simultaneous administration with drugs like interferon alfa, ganciclovir, which suppress bone marrow, may result in hematologic toxicity. Provide a complete list of all the current therapy to obtain a holistic prescription.

Get your blood count done regularly, to track neutropenia or anemia. Follow your doctor’s guidance meticulously, in order to assuage the side effects and derive most out of the drug.

Retrovir Dosage
