Important Treatment Tips for Lamivudine

General Information on Dosing With Lamivudine

Considerations for people taking lamivudine include the following:
 
  • Lamivudine comes in tablet and oral solution (liquid) form. These medications are usually taken by mouth once or twice daily.
     
  • It does not matter if you take lamivudine with food or on an empty stomach. If the medicine bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
     
  • Try to take lamivudine at the same time(s) every day to maintain an even level of the medication in your blood.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. It is very important that you closely follow your healthcare provider's instructions about taking lamivudine. Missing doses can increase the chance of the virus developing resistance to lamivudine (making it less effective).
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your lamivudine dosage, please talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
