Abacavir/Lamivudine/Zidovudine for HIV

If you have HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), you may be prescribed abacavir/lamivudine/zidovudine (Trizivir®) as part of your antiviral treatment. This drug has been approved for use by itself or in combination with other HIV medications. It is currently approved for use in adults only.
 
Abacavir/lamivudine/zidovudine contains three different HIV/AIDS medications, all of which belong to a group of drugs known as nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). These products work by blocking a process that the HIV virus needs in order to multiply.
