AIDS Home > Agenerase for HIV/AIDS

People who have HIV/AIDS may be given Agenerase® (amprenavir) in combination with other drugs as part of their treatment plan. Although this medication cannot cure these conditions, it can help keep the HIV virus from multiplying and infecting healthy cells.
Agenerase is available in both capsule and liquid forms, and is generally taken two to three times a day. You can take it with food; however, do not take it with foods that are high in fat, as this will slow the rate at which this drug is absorbed from the digestive tract.
(Click Agenerase for more information on this medication, including possible side effects, dosing guidelines, and what to do if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.)
