Information on Lamivudine/Zidovudine

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved lamivudine/zidovudine (Combivir®) for the treatment of HIV and AIDS. Like most medications used to treat these conditions, lamivudine/zidovudine is taken with other drugs as part of a "cocktail" and should not be taken alone. It works by interfering with the process by which the HIV virus multiplies.
 
Prior to beginning treatment with lamivudine/zidovudine, inform your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you have, particularly anemia, a blood disorder, or liver disease. You may need more careful monitoring in such situations or may even need to take a different drug. Your healthcare provider also needs to know about any other medication you are taking to protect against possible drug interactions.
