Telzir How to Take

Fosamprenavir belongs to the group of medications known as protease inhibitors. It is used in combination with other medications to treat adults and children at least 6 years old that have human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection.

Fosamprenavir does not cure HIV or AIDS and does not prevent it from being spread to others. It does slow further growth or reproduction of HIV when used in combination with other medications, and it seems to slow down the destruction of the immune system. This may help to delay the development of problems that are related to AIDS or HIV disease.

Telzir may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Telzir may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Telzir may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Telzir for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Telzir, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Telzir without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Telzir to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Telzir if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Telzir Dosage

For people who have not taken a protease inhibitor before, the usual recommended dose of fosamprenavir for adults 18 years of age and older is 1,400 mg (along with 200 mg of ritonavir) daily or 700 mg (along with 100 mg of ritonavir) twice daily. People who have taken a protease inhibitor in the past should follow the twice-daily regimen. The capsules should be swallowed whole with or without food. They should not be crushed or chewed. When adults take the oral suspension, they should shake the bottle vigorously and take the prescribed dose on an empty stomach.

For children older than 6 years of age, the dose of Telzir is determined by your doctor based on body weight (but it should not exceed the recommended adult dose) and is taken twice daily. Children should take the suspension with food. If vomiting occurs within 30 minutes of receiving a dose, the dose should be taken again. The suspension should be shaken vigorously before use.

Use an oral syringe to measure each dose of the suspension, as it gives a more accurate measurement than household teaspoons.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Telzir exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Both the tablet and suspension forms of fosamprenavir may be stored at room temperature. Keep this and all medication out of the reach of children. Do not allow the suspension to freeze. Discard the suspension 28 days after first opening.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

HEALTH CANADA ADVISORY

February 19, 2014

Health Canada has issued new information concerning the use of Telzir ® (fosamprenavir). To read the full report, visit Health Canada's website at www.hc-sc.gc.ca.

Birth control: Your doctor may advise that you stop using hormonal birth control pills while taking fosamprenavir. Birth control pills may be less effective while you are taking Telzir. Taking birth control pills while taking Telzir also can increase the risk of developing liver problems. An alternate nonhormonal birth control method (e.g., condoms) should be used to prevent pregnancy.

Bleeding risk: People with Hemophilia may be more likely to bleed while taking Telzir.

Cholesterol and triglycerides: Telzir may cause increases in cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Your doctor will check these levels before and during treatment.

Fat redistribution: Over time, Telzir may change how fat is distributed in your body and may change your body shape. You may notice increased fat in the upper back, neck, and breasts, as well as around the back, chest, and stomach area. You may also notice loss of fat from the legs, arms, and face. The long-term effects of this are not known.

Diabetes: Telzir may increase blood glucose (sugar) levels in the body. It may also increase the risk of developing diabetes. If you have diabetes or have risk factors for developing diabetes, discuss with your doctor how this medication may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Telzir, and whether any special monitoring is needed. Although your doctor will check your blood glucose levels through blood tests while you are taking Telzir, report any symptoms of high blood sugar (e.g., increased hunger, increased thirst, increased urination) to your doctor.

Drug interactions: There are life-threatening interactions that can occur between fosamprenavir and many other medications. For your safety, if you are thinking about or using any other medication, prescription or non-prescription, you should check with your doctor or pharmacist first. See the "What other medications could interact with Telzir?" section for more details.

Heart rhythm: Fosamprenavir can cause a life-threatening irregular heartbeat when taken by someone who is also taking certain medications to control an irregular heart beat. If you are taking lidocaine, amiodarone, or quinidine, make sure your doctor is aware. These medications should not be taken by someone who is also taking fosamprenavir.

Immune reconstitution syndrome: Telzir may cause immune reconstitution syndrome, where signs and symptoms of inflammation from previous infections appear. These symptoms occur soon after starting anti-HIV medication and can vary. They are thought to occur as a result of the immune system improving and being able to fight infections that have been present without symptoms, such as pneumonia, herpes, or Tuberculosis. Report any new symptoms to your doctor immediately.

Liver disease: Liver disease or reduced liver function may cause Telzir to build up in the body, causing side effects. If you have liver problems, discuss with your doctor how Telzir may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Telzir, and whether any special monitoring is needed. Your doctor may want to test your liver function regularly with blood tests while you are taking Telzir.

If you experience symptoms of liver problems such as fatigue, feeling unwell, loss of appetite, nausea, yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes, dark urine, pale stools, abdominal pain or swelling, and itchy skin, contact your doctor immediately.

People who also have hepatitis B or C may be more likely to experience liver problems.

Skin allergic reactions: Telzir has been associated with a life-threatening skin allergic reaction called Stevens-Johnson syndrome. If you have experienced any skin allergic reactions, tell your doctor before taking Telzir. If you experience a severe rash or a rash with accompanying symptoms that affect the body (e.g., Fever, nausea), contact your doctor immediately.

Sulfa medication allergy: Fosamprenavir is a sulfonamide (sulfa medication). Some people who are allergic to sulfonamide antibiotics may also experience allergic reactions to fosamprenavir. Before you take fosamprenavir inform your doctor about any previous adverse reactions you have had to medications, especially sulfamethoxazole. Contact your doctor at once if you experience signs of an allergic reaction, such as skin rash, itching, difficulty breathing or swelling of the face and throat.

Pregnancy: Telzir should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Telzir, contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: It is not known if fosamprenavir passes into breast milk. Women who have HIV infection are cautioned against breast-feeding because of the risk of passing HIV to a baby who does not have the infection.

Children: The safety and effectiveness of Telzir have not been established for children less than 2 years of age.
