What should I avoid while taking Isentress?

Isentress does not cure HIV or prevent someone from spreading to other people. During Isentress treatment, you need to avoid unprotected sexual contact and sharing needles. Isentress is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, as the effects of Isentress on pregnant or breastfeeding women are unknown. Talk to your doctor about which medications to avoid during treatment to ensure that Isentress is working as efficiently and safely as possible. It is important to take Isentress regularly and without missing a dose, as irregularities in treatment can make the virus resistant to Isentress or the medications with which it is combined. Avoid alcohol during Isentress treatment because it may worsen side effects of Isentress, such as drowsiness and dizziness. Do not drive or operate machinery before you know how Isentress affects you.
