Introduction to Instgra 50mg Tablet 30's

Instgra 50mg Tablet is an antiviral drug belonging to the Integrase strand transfer inhibitor category, containing the active ingredient Dolutegravir. It is used to treat human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. HIV infection is mainly spread by sexual contact with anyone who has the infection or by transfer of infected blood (by sharing injection needles). This drug must be taken with other medicines used to treat HIV infection.

This drug is contraindicated in individuals with liver disease. Due to the higher concentration, caution should be taken when administering the drug to individuals with liver impairment. The dosage of this drug may need to be adjusted by your doctor, or it may need to be used with extra monitoring in these individuals to ensure its safety and efficacy. During the early stages of HIV treatment, some patients may experience an inflammatory response to opportunistic infections. This condition, immune reconstitution syndrome, can occur after starting the drug or other antiretroviral therapies. Knowing this possibility and monitoring for any signs of worsening infections or inflammatory symptoms is necessary. Inform your healthcare provider if the symptoms concern you or persist longer than usual. 

It is necessary for healthcare professionals to carefully monitor patients taking this drug for any signs or symptoms of skin or hypersensitivity reactions, such as rash, blistering, or mucosal lesions.

Patients are also advised to report any skin or hypersensitivity reactions to their healthcare provider and to seek medical emergency immediately if they experience any symptoms of a severe reaction.
