Atazanavir is used alongside other medications for the treatment of the infection caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). HIV is the virus that gives rise to acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS).

Atazanavir will not heal or stop HIV infection or AIDS. It helps stop HIV from reproducing and seems to slow down the destruction of the immune system. This may help delay problems that are generally associated with AIDS or HIV disease from happening. Atazanavir will not stop you from spreading HIV to other people. People who receive this medicine may continue to have other problems generally associated with AIDS or HIV disease.

The medication is available only with your doctor’s prescription.
