About Zidovudine

What is zidovudine?

Zidovudine is an antiviral medication that helps prevent the HIV-1 virus from spreading to healthy cells in the body. Zidovudine does not cure or prevent the HIV virus, and it must be taken along other HIV medications to prevent drug-resistant variants of the infection. Zidovudine is a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor that works by blocking HIV enzymes that increase the spread of the virus. It must be taken daily to reduce the amount of HIV in the blood from developing into acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

How do I take zidovudine?

Take zidovudine twice daily around the same time with or without food. It is very important to take zidovudine along with other HIV medications as directed by your doctor. Do not crush, chew, or break apart zidovudine tablets.

What if I forget to take a dose of zidovudine?

It is important to take zidovudine every day around the same time. If you forget to take a dose of zidovudine, skip it and take your next scheduled dose at the normal time. Do not take more zidovudine than is prescribed to you as it may cause side effects.

What happens if I overdose on zidovudine?

An overdose on zidovudine may cause extreme fatigue, difficulty breathing, and fast heartbeat. Contact local health emergency services at 911 or Poison Control at 1-800-222-1222 in case of a zidovudine overdose.

Zidovudine does not cure or prevent HIV; it simply reduces the viral load in the blood to prevent the development of AIDS. Taking antivirals like zidovudine may cause the body’s immune system to become stronger, and fight off infections in the body.
