Chemical Name: Zidovudine/Lamivudine
Combivir is an anti-HIV medication classified as a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor. Combivir is used to prevent HIV from altering the genetic material of healthy T-cells, thus inhibiting the cells from producing new virus and decreases the amount of virus in the body. Combivir is a combination of two drugs, 300mg of Retrovir and 150mg of Epivir, which must be used with at least one other anti-HIV drug, usually a protease inhibitor.
Combivir should not be taken together with any other medication that contains either of the two drugs in Combivir. Taking Combivir is equivalent to taking Retrovir and Epivir as separate pills together, however taking Combivir is a much more convenient way of taking these anti-HIV drugs.
