Amprenavir (Agenerase®) is a protease inhibitor used to treat HIV. It was approved by the Food and Drug Administration on April 15, 1999, for twice-a-day dosing instead of needing to be taken every eight hours. The convenient dosing came at a price, as the dose required is 1,200mg, delivered in eight very large gel capsules. Production of amprenavir was discontinued by the manufacturer December 31, 2004.
