What should I know about fosamprenavir calcium before taking it?

Fosamprenavir calcium is prescribed as part of a drug cocktail to manage human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. It should not be taken on its own, and it is not a cure for HIV. Fosamprenavir calcium does not prevent the development of secondary illnesses due to a compromised immune system. It cannot stop you from transmitting HIV to other people. Fosamprenavir calcium can interact with some medications, resulting in potentially life-threatening side effects. Talk to your doctor about all medications, including over-the-counter drugs, you are currently taking, and let your doctor know if you want to discontinue use. You should continue taking fosamprenavir calcium even if your symptoms improve. Skipping doses or discontinuing use may make HIV more difficult to treat.
