Introduction

Aluvia 200mg/50mg Tablet is a combination of antiretrovirals medicines. It is prescribed to treat HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) infection. It boosts up the immunity to fight against HIV to manage or treat AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome).

Aluvia 200mg/50mg Tablet restricts the growth of HIV in the body and reduces the risk of getting HIV-related complications to improve the lifespan of an individual. The medicine should be taken with food for better efficacy. Taking these medicines regularly at the same time increases their effectiveness. A dose of this medicine should not be missed as it can affect your recovery. It is important to complete the full course of the treatment until your doctor advises you to stop it. Sudden discontinuation of the treatment may affect the potency of the medicine.

The most common side effects of this medicine are diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and increased blood fat levels (hypertriglyceridemia and hypercholesterolemia). These side effects are generally temporary, but if they persist or become serious inform your doctor. Drinking plenty of fluid can help you to cope up with these side effects, so stay hydrated. In addition to that, avoid alcohol consumption as it may increase the intensity of the side effects.

Before starting with the treatment, you should consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have any health condition. Your doctor may suggest regular laboratory tests to check your blood counts, kidney and liver functions, and other health conditions. If you are HIV positive, you should not breastfeed or share personal belongings like razors or toothbrushes. Consult your doctor to know about safe sex methods in order to prevent transmission of HIV during intercourse.

Benefits of Aluvia Tablet

In HIV infection
