What is Abamune-L used for?
Abamune-L tablets 600mg/300mg is a combination of two medications, abacavir and lamivudine which belong to a class of medicines called antiretrovirals. They are used together with other antiretrovirals to slow down the progression of HIV infection (human immunodeficiency virus), which can lead to AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) and other related illnesses for example, AIDS – related Complex or ARC.
How does Abamune-L work?
The two medications abacavir and lamivudine combined together help prevent HIV from reproducing. The HIV virus is responsible for acquired immune deficiency syndrome as HIV infection destroys CD4 (T) cells, which are important to the body’s immune system. The immune system is what helps fight infections. Abamune-L tablets do not cure AIDS or destroy the HIV virus, but rather delay further damage to the immune system by stopping production of new viruses. Abamune-L tablets do not reduce the risk of passing infection to others. It is important that you continue to take precautions to prevent this from happening as the HIV virus can still be passed on by sexual activity or by contamination with infected blood.
What does Abamune-L contain?
Abamune-L tablets contain the active ingredients, abacavir 600mg and lamivudine 300mg, which are nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors. Reverse transcriptase is a component of HIV required to infect cells so that more virus can be produced, however abacavir and lamivudine prevent transcriptase from functioning properly. Abamune-L tablets also contain the following inactive ingredients: magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, sodium starch glycollate.
