Indinavir Drug Information

Indinavir is an antiviral drug. It is used for human acquired immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and slows the progression of HIV infection, but indinavir is not used to treat HIV. HIV kills CD4 T cells in the body. These are important white blood cells because they are involved in protecting the body against infection. If HIV is not treated, It weakens the immune system so that the body can not defend itself against bacteria, viruses and other microbes.

Indinavir belongs to a group of protease inhibitors (PIS) antiretroviral drugs. It is prescribed, along with a number of other antiviral drugs, as part of combination therapy. Taking three or more antiretroviral drugs at the same time is more effective than taking a single drug. Combination use of different drugs reduces the risk of developing resistance to any of the drugs.

Indinavir slows the progression of HIV infection by reducing the number of viruses in the body. It helps to improve the immune system and reduces the risk of developing complications associated with HIV infection. Indinavir will be prescribed by a specialist doctor.
