About Fuzeon

Fuzeon is used with other anti-HIV medicines to treat adults and children ages 6 years and older with HIV infection. Fuzeon is not used by itself to treat HIV infection. Fuzeon does not cure HIV-infection or AIDS and does not prevent HIV-transmission.

Fuzeon is called an HIV fusion inhibitor. Fuzeon blocks HIV’s ability to infect healthy CD4 cells. When used with other anti-HIV medicines, Fuzeon can reduce the amount of HIV in the blood and increase the number of CD4 cells. This may keep your immune system healthy so it can help fight infection.

Precautions for Fuzeon

  • Avoid doing anything that can spread HIV infection since Fuzeon does not stop you from passing the HIV infection to others.
  • Do not share needles or other injection equipment.
  • Do not share personal items that can have blood or body fluids on them, like toothbrushes or razor blades.
