    What are the different types of antiretrovirals?

    Antiretrovirals can be divided into several classes or categories of medications. Each different class of medication attempts to inhibit the replication of HIV at a different point in its reproduction path. What follows is a general review of the different medication classes – please refer to the link section to review medications under review or undergoing clinical research. The list of antiretrovirals is constantly expanding – refer to your physician, community support group or the internet to explore "up and coming medications".

    HIV medications fall into six types or "classes":

    • NRTIs (nucleoside or nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors)
    • NNRTIs (non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors)
    • PIs (protease inhibitors)
    • Fusion inhibitors
    • Entry inhibitors 
    • Integrase inhibitors

    All six classes of medications have been designed to interfere with HIV's ability to copy itself -- that is, to reproduce inside your body. Each class of medication stops the virus at a different moment in its reproductive cycle.
