About Ziagen

What is Ziagen?

Ziagen is a prescription therapy that is used in combination with other medications to treat the HIV-1 virus. Ziagen cannot be used alone as it may cause the body to develop a drug-resistant version of the HIV-1 virus. Patients who are diagnosed with HIV are prescribed treatments like Ziagen to reduce the amount of HIV-1 in the blood (viral load) and increase CD4+ (T) cells that help fight off infections. It is important to note that Ziagen does not cure or prevent the HIV; it simply suppresses the virus to prevent the development of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). Suppressing the HIV virus with antivirals like Ziagen can help reduce the risk for infections that can lead to death.

How do I take Ziagen?

Take Ziagen once daily along with other medications with or without food. It is important to take Ziagen every day around the same time to receive the maximum benefits of the therapy. Do not crush, chew or break apart Ziagen tablets.
