Reyataz Atazanavir Sulfate and/or alternatives
The active ingredient in Reyataz is Atazanavir, and it belongs to the class of antiviral medicines known as protease inhibitors. You can buy Reyataz in the form of oral capsules.
Indications & Dosage of Reyataz
Reyataz is indicated for the treatment of HIV. It works by preventing HIV viral cells from multiplying inside the patient’s body. You must remember that this medicine does not cure HIV or AIDS, but only controls the virus from worsening the condition.
Reyataz 200 to 400mg per day will be recommended to you depending on your medical condition and response to the treatment. Usually, you will also be advised to take Ritonavir along with this drug.
Take Reyataz capsules with food without opening, breaking or chewing them. You will have to swallow them whole. If you are taking buffered drugs or antacids as well, you will be advised to take Reyataz at least one hour after or two hours before these medications. As the amount of drug needs to be maintained at a constant level in the body, you must try to take Reyataz at almost the same time each day.
