Side Effects of Enfuvirtide

The most commonly reported side effects of enfuvirtide include reactions at the injection site (such as pain, redness, and itching). In most cases, these side effects are minor and can be easily treated. However, if you develop more serious enfuvirtide side effects (such as signs of pneumonia, kidney problems, or depression), you should notify your healthcare provider right away.

Side Effects of Enfuvirtide: An Introduction

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with enfuvirtide (Fuzeon®). However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
