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 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 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 n tn However, your doctor is going to draw blood that day, you might want to wait until after he draws blood before taking the ribavirin. If it were me, I'd request another viral load test the day of your visit (before the shot)as well as a CBC which I assume he will do anyway. I'd also bring up the fact that you'd like a sensitive week 4 viral load test -- something like Quest Diagnostic's "Heptimax" that goes down to 5 IU/ml.
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 With me, the Ribavirin always knocked out any kind of looming cold in the immediate area. Last time on treatment when I came off of it, that's when I did get a cold about 3 weeks after coming off the treatment, but never while I was on. I think it's because the antivirals USUALLY/NOT ALWAYS, help you to get rid of other viruses as well. BTW, there's a nasal spray of Ribavirin that they've used in children for colds. I've seen it in the PDR.

29837 tn?1414538248 Treatment Breakthrough 1998 - FDA approves Rebetron (Schering's Intron A plus ribavirin) for the treatment of hepatitis C. Ribavirin is a synthetic nucleoside analogue with a broad spectrum of antiviral activity that was initially developed as a possible treatment of HIV.
86075 tn?1238118691 They tested him for the flu and that RSV all the kids are getting around here. There was no less than 10 kids there his age, all with a fever of 104. I guess the flu virus is in your nasal passages. So, they squirt some water up there first, then they suck your brains out (it sounded like anyway) into a tube and that's how they test for it. So, everyone watch out when you gotta help a young one blow their nose! HE just learned how to do the thumbs up.
