DARAPRIM is a prescription medicine. DARAPRIM is used for HIV infection Treatment.
INDICATIONS AND USAGE
Treatment of Toxoplasmosis: DARAPRIM is indicated for the treatment of toxoplasmosis when used conjointly
with a sulfonamide, since synergism exists with this combination. Treatment of Acute Malaria: DARAPRIM is also indicated for the treatment of acute malaria. It should not beused alone to treat acute malaria. Fast-acting schizonticides such as chloroquine or quinine are indicated and preferable for the treatment of acute malaria. However, conjoint use of DARAPRIM with a sulfonamide (e.g., sulfadoxine) will initiate transmission control and suppression of susceptible strains of plasmodia. Chemoprophylaxis of Malaria: DARAPRIM is indicated for the chemoprophylaxis of malaria due to susceptible strains of plasmodia. However, resistance to pyrimethamine is prevalent worldwide. It is not suitable as a prophylactic agent for travelers to most areas.
