People who have HIV or AIDS may be prescribed Ziagen® (abacavir sulfate). Ziagen is part of a class of drugs known as nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) and is used in conjunction with other medications as a treatment for HIV and AIDS. Ziagen works by blocking a process that the HIV virus needs in order to multiply. The medication comes in the form of a tablet or an oral solution that is taken once or twice a day. The dosage of Ziagen your healthcare provider prescribes will vary depending on several factors, such as your weight, your age, other medical conditions you may have, and other medications you may be taking.
