Tipranavir for HIV/AIDS

Approved for the treatment of HIV or AIDS in adults and children as young as two years old, tipranavir (Aptivus®) is only approved for use as part of an HIV "cocktail." This means it should always be combined with other HIV/AIDS medicines. Tipranavir is specifically designed for use with ritonavir (Norvir®), another medication that enhances the effectiveness of tipranavir.
 
Tipranavir plus ritonavir is usually recommended for people who have tried other HIV drugs without success.
