Stavudine for Treating HIV/AIDS

Though not a cure for HIV or AIDS, stavudine (Zerit®) can help keep the virus from multiplying and infecting healthy cells. This medication is available by prescription only and is approved for use in adults and children, even newborns. It belongs to a group of drugs known as nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). Stavudine is not approved to be used by itself; it should only be combined with other medications as part of an HIV "cocktail."
