Lexiva Drug Information
Lexiva is used with other HIV medications to help control HIV infection. It helps to decrease the amount of HIV in your body so your immune system can work better. This lowers your chance of getting HIV complications (such as new infections, cancer) and improves your quality of life. Fosamprenavir belongs to a class of drugs known as protease inhibitors. It may be given with ritonavir, another protease inhibitor, to increase ("boost") the levels of fosamprenavir. This helps fosamprenavir work better. Fosamprenavir is not a cure for HIV infection. To decrease your risk of spreading HIV disease to others,(1) continue to take all HIV medications exactly as prescribed by your doctor, (2) always use an effective barrier method (latex or polyurethane condoms/dental dams) during all sexual activity, and (3) do not share personal items (such as needles/syringes, toothbrushes, and razors) that may have contacted blood or other body fluids. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.
How to Use Lexiva
Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking fosamprenavir and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Take Lexiva by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually once or twice daily. Fosamprenavir tablets may be taken with or without food. If you are taking fosamprenavir suspension, shake the bottle well before each dose. Carefully measure the dose using a special measuring device/spoon. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose. Adults should take the suspension without food. Children should take the suspension with food. If vomiting occurs less than 30 minutes after taking a dose, repeat the dose. The Dosage of Lexiva is based on your medical condition, response to treatment, other medications you may be taking, and if you have taken protease inhibitors to treat HIV before. For children, the Dosage of Lexiva is also based on age and weight. Be sure to tell your doctor and pharmacist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). If you are directed to take ritonavir with Lexiva, take them both at the same time(s). For the best effect, take Lexiva at evenly spaced times. To help you remember, take Lexiva at the same time(s) every day. It is very important to continue taking Lexiva (and other HIV medications) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not skip any doses. Do not take more or less of Lexiva than prescribed or stop taking it (or other HIV medicines) even for a short time unless directed to do so by your doctor. Doing so may cause the amount of virus to increase, make the infection more difficult to treat (resistant), or worsen side effects.
Before taking fosamprenavir, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it or to amprenavir; or if you have any other allergies. Lexiva may contain inactive ingredients (such as propylene glycol in the suspension), which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Lexiva, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,liver problems (including hepatitis B or C infections), kidney problems (including kidney stones), heart problems (such as coronary artery disease, heart attack), diabetes, a certain bleeding problem (hemophilia). Fosamprenavir may increase the level of cholesterol and fats (triglycerides) in your blood. HIV infection can also cause this effect. This could increase your risk for heart problems such as a heart attack. Discuss the risks and benefits of treatment with your doctor and ways to lower your risk of heart disease. Tell your doctor if you have heart problems, if you smoke, or if you have other conditions that increase your risk of heart disease such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol/triglyceride levels. Before having surgery, tell your doctors or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Children may be more sensitive to the side effects of Lexiva, especially vomiting and signs of infection (such as fever, persistent sore throat). During pregnancy, Lexiva should be used only when clearly needed. Treatment can lower the risk of passing HIV infection to your baby, and fosamprenavir may be part of that treatment. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is unknown if fosamprenavir passes into breast milk. Because breast milk can transmit HIV, do not breast-feed.
It is important not to miss doses of Lexiva. If you miss a dose of Lexiva by less than 4 hours, take it as soon as you remember. However, If you miss a dose of Lexiva by more than 4 hours, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval.certain HIV protease inhibitors (such as lopinavir, tipranavir), boceprevir, orlistat, simeprevir, telaprevir. Other medications can affect the removal of fosamprenavir from your body, which may affect how fosamprenavir works. Examples include etravirine, rifampin, St. John's wort, among others. Fosamprenavir can speed up or slow down the removal of other medications from your body, which may affect how they work. Examples of affected drugs include alpha blockers (such as alfuzosin), certain benzodiazepines (midazolam, triazolam), cisapride, delavirdine, ergot alkaloids (such as dihydroergotamine, ergotamine), fluticasone, pimozide, ranolazine, rivaroxaban, drugs to treat erectile dysfunction-ED or pulmonary hypertension (such as sildenafil, vardenafil), certain drugs to treat irregular heartbeat (such as flecainide, propafenone), certain "statin" cholesterol drugs (lovastatin, simvastatin), salmeterol, among others. Lexiva may decrease the effectiveness of hormonal birth control such as pills, patch, or ring. This could cause pregnancy. Talk to your doctor about additional or alternative reliable forms of birth control, and always use an effective barrier method (latex or polyurethane condoms/dental dams) during all sexual activity to decrease the risk of spreading HIV to others. Tell your doctor if you have any new spotting or breakthrough bleeding, because these may be signs that your hormonal birth control is not working well.
Lexiva Side Effects
Diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and headache may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly. Remember that your doctor has prescribed Lexiva because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using Lexiva do not have serious side effects. As your immune system gets stronger, it can begin to fight off infections you already had, possibly causing disease symptoms to come back. You could also have symptoms if your immune system becomes overactive. This reaction may happen at any time (soon after starting HIV treatment or many months later).

Changes in body fat may occur while you are taking Lexiva (such as increased fat in the upper back and stomach areas, decreased fat in the arms and legs). The cause and long-term effects of these changes are unknown. Discuss the risks and benefits of treatment with your doctor, as well as the possible use of exercise to reduce this side effect. Get medical help right away if you have any very serious side effects,signs of a heart attack (such as chest/jaw/left arm pain, shortness of breath, unusual sweating). Fosamprenavir can commonly cause a rash that is usually not serious. However, you may not be able to tell it apart from a rare rash that could be a sign of a severe reaction. Therefore, get medical help right away if you develop any rash. A very serious allergic reaction to Lexiva is rare. However, get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction,rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.
