What is Viracept (Nelfinavir)?

The introduction of ARVs (antiretroviral drugs) gives HIV-positive individuals a chance to live a quality life with the infection, and one of those ARVs is Viracept. This medication is often used with other ARVs to give patients a more efficient treatment. Viracept is the brand name of Nelfinavir.

How does Viracept work?

Included as one of the protease inhibitors, this medicine works by deterring the main function of HIV. It also reduces the possibility of having AIDs in the long run. Viracept works means of impeding the protease enzyme that HIV requires to replicate.  When this is administered, a part of the viral load becomes immature, making it inactive and unable to produce more of its own. That’s how Viracept acts and serves as an ARV.
