About Combivir

What is Combivir?

Combivir is a combination drug containing the medications lamivudine and zidovudine. It is an NRTI (nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor) that is prescribed, along with other medications, to treat human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Combivir works by preventing HIV cells from reproducing in order to decrease the amount of the virus in the blood.

How do I take Combivir?

Combivir is administered in tablet form and taken orally twice a day with water and without regard for food. The exact dosing regimen will be determined by your doctor; follow the prescription instructions exactly. Combivir controls but does not cure HIV infection; continue taking this medication even if you feel well. Do not stop taking it without notifying your doctor.

What if I forget to take a dose of Combivir?

If you forget to take your scheduled dose of Combivir, do so as soon as your remember and are able. However, if it is almost time for the next scheduled dose, skip the one missed and resume the regular schedule. Do not increase the number of tablets taken or change the schedule to make up for one that was missed.

What happens if I overdose on Combivir?
