Delavirdine is a prescription medication used for treating HIV infection and AIDS. It is not a cure for HIV or AIDS, but when taken with other medications as part of an HIV "cocktail," the drug can help prevent the virus from multiplying. Delavirdine comes in tablet form and is generally taken three times daily. Side effects may include weakness, nausea, and flu-like symptoms.
- Weakness or fatigue
- Upper respiratory tract infection (such as the common cold)
- Flu symptoms (such as chills, body aches, and fever).
