Norvir (Ritonavir)
Definition: A protease inhibitor first approved by FDA in 1996 for use with other HIV medications as part of an HIV medication regimen in adults and children over 2 years old. While initially used as a protease inhibitor at high doses, today it is a very popular drug, used to boost the effect of other HIV medications. As a boosting agent, the dose is significantly less, as are the side effects.
