Delavirdine Drug Information

Delavirdine mesylate (Rescriptor®) is approved for the treatment of HIV/AIDS when used as part of a drug "cocktail." The medication comes in tablet form and is generally taken three times a day.
 
Prior to beginning treatment with delavirdine, information on taking the drug needs to be reviewed carefully with your healthcare provider. For example, people who do not produce stomach acid (known medically as achlorhydria) should take this product with an acidic beverage, such as orange juice or cranberry juice, as stomach acid is necessary to absorb the medicine into the bloodstream.
