The standard dose of Fuzeon is 90mg, which is injected into the upper arm, thigh or abdomen after being reconstituted, or mixed with sterile water, twice a day.
Review: Fuzeon was a “salvage drug” and was first approved by the FDA back in 2003 as a second chance for those who had developed resistance to other HIV drugs. Since then many newer, more effective, cheaper and MUCH more convenient drugs have entered the market. Fuzeon is rarely prescribed anymore.
