  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Fuzeon patient assistance program?

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Fuzeon patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Fuzeon. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Fuzeon assistance, we will handle the application process for you. We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Fuzeon patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Fuzeon medication refills for up to 1 year.

What is Fuzeon?

Fuzeon contains the prescription medicine enfuvirtide, which is classed as an antiviral medicine. Fuzeon is used in combination with other medications to treat human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) when other treatments have not been completely effective in treating the virus. HIV is the virus that can cause acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Fuzeon is not a cure for HIV or AIDS.

Fuzeon active ingredients

Enfuvirtide blocks the entry of the HIV virus into cells by blocking the virus and cell membranes from sticking together. Enfuvirtide does this by binding to specific points in the virus itself preventing it from being able to join with normal healthy cell membranes.

Use Fuzeon as prescribed by your doctor. Fuzeon must be given in combination with other antiviral medications and should not be used alone. Fuzeon is injected under the skin. A healthcare professional may teach you how to use the medication yourself. Fuzeon must be mixed with a liquid before using it. Prepare your injection only when you are ready to use it. Use a different place on your body each time you use an injection. Do not use the same place two times in a row. Make sure you use this medicine for the full prescribed length of time. Missing doses can increase the chance of your virus becoming resistant to this medication.

Fuzeon side effects

The most common side effects caused by Fuzeon include:

  • Nausea
  • Loss of appetite, weight loss, constipation, diarrhea
  • Pain or numb feeling in your legs or feet
  • Muscle pain or weakness
  • Feeling depressed
  • Difficulty sleeping, feeling tired
  • A reaction where the medicine was injected

In rare instances, Fuzeon can cause more serious side effects. These can include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Fever, tight chest, cough with yellow or green mucus, chest pain, wheezing, swollen glands
  • Pain in your upper stomach spreading to your back
  • Blood in your urine
  • Swollen feet
  • Problems speaking or swallowing, and with your balance
  • Feeling weak

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Fuzeon against your risk of side effects.

Fuzeon drug interactions

Fuzeon can interact with other medications. These include:

  • Antibiotics for bacterial infections – rifampin
  • Other treatments for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) – ritonavir, saquinavir, cobicistat

This list is not exhaustive and other drugs may interact with Fuzeon.

Fuzeon warning and precautions
