Why is FUZEON® an injection?
FUZEON is the first anti-HIV drug that is taken as an injection under the skin. FUZEON needs to be injected because, if taken by mouth, it would be digested in your stomach and would not work. Your doctor or nurse will teach you how to find the correct sites for injecting FUZEON. The sites for injection are the abdomen, upper thighs or upper arms because there is enough fatty tissue under the skin to allow you to pinch enough skin to give the injection correctly. FUZEON comes in a 30-day kit with everything you need for your injections.
