Fuzeon tablets
Feb 24, 2011

hello- i was wondering if fuzeon is in tablet form? if not, is there another medication like it? also the other medication in its category is selzentry for ccr5- is that only a ccr5 medication or is it like fuzeon- thanks-

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

Enfuvirtide (Fuzeon) is only available as a twice-daily subcutaneous injection and it is the only member of it's drug class.

Maraviroc (Selzentry) is a different class of medications (CCR5 inhibitor).

Both drugs prevent HIV entry into human cells, but work through entirely different mechanisms.

Hope this helps, BY

Does atripla flair up herpes or help alleviate it?
