Stavudine

Uses

Stavudine is an anti-retroviral medicine, used in the treatment to suppress the HIV virus and preventing it from infecting the immune system in the body

How it Works

Stavudine slows the progress of HIV infection, but it is not a cure. Stavudine is a NNRTI (non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor) which is given for a short period of time, when other NNRTI's are not suitable. Stavudine is usually taken with 3 or more other anti-retroviral medicines at the same time as a combination therapy. Stavudine as an NNRTI directly interferes with the enzymes ability to replicate the HIV virus DNA material thus slowing down the virus from spreading and keeping it at bay

Common Side effects

Patients who take Stavudine may suffer from such side effects;

Fatigue,
Vomiting,
Headache,
Muscle pain,
Nausea,
Unusual weight loss or gain,
Dizziness
