Abacavir Sulfate

Drug Info for abacavir sulfate

Abacavir is used along with other medications to treat human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Abacavir is in a class of medications called nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). It works by decreasing the amount of HIV in the blood. Although abacavir does not cure HIV, it may decrease your chance of developing acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and HIV-related illnesses such as serious infections or cancer. Taking these medications along with practicing safer sex and making other lifestyle changes may decrease the risk of transmitting (spreading) the HIV virus to other people.

Ziagen is a prescription-only medication that is used to treat patients diagnosed with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Ziagen works by decreasing the growth of HIV cells within the body to help the patient’s immune system from receiving HIV related complications including tuberculosis and lymphoma.
