 5  HIV No side effects that I'm aware of I've been taking isentress for over a year, and so far so good. I'm very happy with it. I think people only tend to add reviews of drugs if they've had a bad experience with them. I noticed there was a 1-star review, so I thought I'd add my 5-star review to balance things out a bit. I take Isentress with Kivexa, and I've never had any problems with either of them. M 31

ISENTRESS  (RALTEGRAVIR POTASSIUM):  Raltegravir is used with other HIV medications to help control HIV infection. It helps to decrease the amount of HIV in your body so your immune system can work better. This lowers your chance of getting HIV complications (such as new infections, cancer) and improves your quality of life. Raltegravir is known as an integrase inhibitor. It blocks the virus from growing and infecting more cells. Raltegravir is not a cure for HIV infection. To decrease your risk of spreading HIV disease to others, do all of the following: (1) continue to take all HIV medications exactly as prescribed by your doctor, (2) always use an effective barrier method (latex or polyurethane condoms/dental dams) during all sexual activity, and (3) do not share personal items (such as needles/syringes, toothbrushes, and razors) that may have contacted blood or other body fluids. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
