Descriptions


Fosamprenavir is used in combination with other medicines to treat patients who are infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). HIV is the virus that causes acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS).

Fosamprenavir may slow down the destruction of the immune system caused by HIV. This may help delay problems that are usually related to AIDS or HIV disease from occurring. However, this medicine will not cure or prevent HIV infection, and it will not keep you from spreading the virus to other people. Patients who receive this medicine may continue to have other problems usually related to AIDS or HIV disease.

This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription.
