Overview

Abacavir Oral Solution Tablets have become a cornerstone in the treatment of HIV/AIDS, offering a powerful mechanism of action that targets the virus at its core. In this comprehensive guide, we delve into the intricacies of Abacavir, exploring its uses, potential side effects, essential warnings, precautions, interactions, proper dosage, and the prescription process.

Abacavir is a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI), disrupting the replication process of the HIV virus. By inhibiting the reverse transcriptase enzyme, Abacavir prevents the conversion of viral RNA into DNA, ultimately hindering the virus’s ability to integrate into the host cell’s genetic material.
