What is Lexiva?

Lexiva is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured for ViiV Healthcare. Lexiva is an antiviral HIV medicine used in combination with other antiretroviral agents for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1 infection) from growing in your body. It helps to decrease the amount of HIV in your body so your immune system can work better.

What doses of Lexiva are available?

Lexiva is available in tablet and oral suspension form, in the following doses: 700 mg tablets and 50 mg/mL.

Lexiva oral suspension should be taken with food in children and without food in adults. The tablets can be taken with or without food. If you miss a dose by more than 4 hours, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at a regular time.

The daily dose of Lexiva is based on the weight of children. Your child’s dose may change if they gain or lose weight. Store tablets at room temperature away from moisture and heat. You can store Lexiva oral suspension in the refrigerator but do not allow it to freeze.

Always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
