PREZISTA is always used with 100 mg ritonavir (Norvir) in combination with other HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) medicines for the treatment of HIV infection in treatment-experienced adult patients, such as those with HIV resistant to more than one PI.
The use of other medications active against your HIV in combination with PREZISTA/ritonavir may increase the likelihood of your overall treatment response. Your doctor will work with you to find the right combination of other HIV meds.
The long-term benefits and side effects of PREZISTA therapy are unknown at this time. It is important that you remain under the care of your doctor.
