Avatar f tn Indications and Usage for Ribavirin 'The safety and efficacy of Ribavirin tablet therapy for the treatment of adenovirus, RSV, parainfluenza or influenza infections have not been established. Ribavirin tablets should not be used for these indications.
Avatar n tn So i was wondering if somebody was given Ribavirin for RSV outside the window period (two years after last unprotected incident exactly) and days later undergoes Elisa testing; is Ribavirin effective enough to decrease the immune system's exposure to HIV to a point in which it would blunt antibodies response, therefore leading to a false negative? or producing a false negative in any other way? This is the last question i ask before either rolling up this sleeve and move on or get re-tested.
Avatar n tn Please, this is where the internet can get people into trouble. There is only one person I know here who has pre-dosed ribavirin and that is FlGuy, and I assume he did that with the knowledge of his treating doctor. That last part is very important, HIS TREATMENT DOCTOR WAS ONBOARD. I urge you not to pre-dose ribavirin without running it by your treatment doctor.
Avatar m tn This is the first report to investigate the effect of RVT and AXN on HCV replication. In contrast to other reported viruses, RVT significantly enhanced HCV RNA replication. Vitamin E also enhanced HCV RNA replication as reported previously, although AXN did not affect replication. IFN and RBV significantly reduced HCV RNA replication, but these effects were dose-dependently hampered and attenuated by the addition of RVT. AXN did not affect antiviral effects of IFN or RBV.
Avatar m tn I have found 4 which the descriptions sound strange to me. Azithromycin, Roxithromycin, moroxydine hydrochloride and Ribavirin. Most of the description I get from the web are that these are for various STD's. but I don't have any STD's. I have had a medical check for my visa to verify this in March of this year. I did have an ear infection with a bad sore throat and lots of congestion last year. Could these medicines be used for treating that?
Avatar m tn They have been treating her with an array of antibiotics including Ribavirin and IVIG for the RSV and they now believe they have taken care of the infections and are awaiting cultures to confirm. She has been receiving plasmapheresis daily for the TTP and her platelet count has gone from 59 to 130. She is also receiving intravenous Plaquenil, CellCept, and Prednisone for her lupus.

Avatar m tn At the time, the interferon was NOT pegylated, and both interferon and ribavirin were given via shots. The chance of cure for genotype 1 was also extremely low. Now, about 10 years later, we have next-generation interferon, oral ribavirin, and DAAs to greatly increase the chance of SVR to >80%, plus a whole host of extremely viable studies.
Avatar f tn Please let me know if that is correct, and if it is, should I tell the Dr. if I have a cold and tell him I should wait? And do you think he'd allow me to wait or what?
29837 tn?1414538248 The clinical findings that ribavirin reduced ALT levels led to the studies of combination ribavirin and interferon therapy. It was found that ribavirin when combined with interferon produced a snygery that proved to be a major breakthrough for treating hepatitis C. Ribavirin (in a mist form) is also approved for the treatment of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection in children.
86075 tn?1238118691 After the first bag of saline, the RN comes in and askes how ya doing and he gives him a thumbs up. What a trooper! Thank goodness he was negative for the flu and RSV. I'm running on reserves today for work so gotta go. Feel better!
