Avatar f tn If you read the Ribavirin Prescribing Information for ribavirin, right at the top of the label it says... 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 m tn In the paper in the American Journal for Clinical Nutrition , published ahead of print March 31st 2010 you find on the forth page in fig 2 the graph of plasma concentrations of RSV as a function of time in these humans to be dose dependent and having for 500mg (quite a high dose!) found the peak concentration of original RSV at 90min after dosing to be 14.4 nanograms/ml or 14.4 micrograms/liter. Knowing the molecular weight of RSV to be 228g/Mol this translates into 14.
Avatar m tn Moroxydine HCl is an antiviral used for the prevention and treatment of influenza. Ribavirin is also an antiviral that is indicated for severe RSV infection, Hepatits C, or other viral infections.
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 n tn I would also like to compile a list of questions for the Dr. concerning Tx. Should a CBC or PCR be done prior to the day of the first shot? Last PCR was done Feb. 19 not sure if a CBC was done then also. Thank you in advance.
Avatar m tn I don't believe that Ribavirin was ever available in injection form. I treated in 2000 and it was an oral drug then. "...Although ICN was allowed in 1980 to market ribavirin, in inhalant form, for RSV infection in children, the U.S. market for this indication was small.
Avatar f tn BTW, there's a nasal spray of Ribavirin that they've used in children for colds. I've seen it in the PDR. But, I'm not sure that they're prescribing it for kids anymore. This was about 5-6 years ago that I saw it there. So, if you're worried about that cold, I'd just say don't. Your white cells and red cells don't usually drop until you've alread been into treatment a least about a month. But, as always, ask your doctor.
