VIDEX EC (DIDANOSINE)

Videx EC Description

Videx EC is a prescription drug for those with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), as part of a drug therapy that usually involves up to 4 medications taken daily to reduce the amount of the HIV virus in your body. Videx EC (enteric coated) or generic Didanosine will not cure HIV, but it can help as part of your treatment to allow you to continue with attending school, work, and enjoying family and social events. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Videx EC Works

When taken as directed, Videx EC will work as a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI). Reverse transcriptase is an essential enzyme the HIV virus needs in order to alter the genetic material of the healthy CD4 cells that this retrovirus has hi-jacked. This action allows the virus to make new viruses while your CD4 cell count decreases and your immune system becomes compromised. By taking Videx EC, the virus is unable to change any genetic coding so their population drops and the CD4 cells will increase their numbers and help your immune system to become stronger.

Early diagnosis and treatment is important for your chance to survive HIV for many years thanks to the advancements the medical community has achieved regarding drugs available to those living with this virus.

How Retroviruses Work

HIV is referred to as a retrovirus, meaning it needs a host in order to survive and multiply by making new viruses. The preferred host is CD4 cells (a type of white blood cell) due to the receptors on their surface that the virus can easily bind to. Once the cell has been hijacked, the virus basically hides its own DNA inside the cell’s DNA so as the cell multiplies, it is actually making a new virus. Without treatment, your white blood cell count becomes too low to fight off opportunistic infections and your condition will worsen and possibly take the next step, which is AIDS.

Before Videx EC is Prescribed to You

Ask your doctor about any risks with taking Videx EC if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Explain other medical conditions and allergies you have to your doctor and list any current OTC or Rx drugs you use or take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements to determine if taking Videx EC is the best medication for you.

Videx EC Precautions

Do not stop, start, or change the dosage of Videx EC or any of your current meds as this could increase your risk of side effects. Never share your medications with others, even if they have the same symptoms or conditions. Keep out of children’s reach and away from pets. Do not miss any doctor or lab appointments as it’s important to check your blood as well as your kidney and liver function. It is vital that you understand how to avoid infecting others with HIV/AIDS.

Possible Side Effects of Videx EC

  • Vision changes
  • Headache
  • Diarrhea
  • Rash

Be aware of any signs that you have a new infection, such as fever, night sweats, weight loss, or mouth sores and contact your doctor right away. This can occur because the symptoms of HIV have masked any other infection your body was unable to fight until your immune system regained more control.
