What is Edurant?
Edurant contains the prescription medicine rilpivirine which is classed as an antiviral medicine. Edurant can not be used alone. It is always used in combination with other antiviral drugs to treat the symptoms and to stop the spread of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in your body. HIV is the virus that can cause acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).
Edurant is used with other antiviral medicines to treat adults and children 12 years of age and older and who weigh at least 77 lbs (35 kg) who:
- Have a viral load (an amount of HIV-1 in the blood) no more than 100,000 copies/mL
- Have never taken HIV medicines before
Edurant is not a cure for HIV or AIDS.
Edurant active ingredients
Rilpivirine works by blocking a specific enzyme known as HIV reverse transcriptase from working in your body. Blocking this enzyme prevents the production of more HIV DNA. This reduces the amount of the HIV virus in your body and slows it from spreading.
Edurant is usually taken once per day with a full meal. It is very important to always take the medicine with food and take Edurant exactly as prescribed by your doctor. You may need regular blood tests, as well as kidney and liver function tests while taking Edurant.
Make sure you get your medication refilled before you run out completely. If you have hepatitis B you may develop liver symptoms after stopping taking this medication, even months after. You may need to have your liver function checked for several months after you have stopped using Edurant. HIV/AIDS is usually treated with a combination of drugs. Do not take Edurant as your only HIV medication.
