AIDS Home > Oral Combivir Tablets
Among the medications used to treat HIV and AIDS is Combivir® (lamivudine/zidovudine). While this product is not a cure for HIV or AIDS, it can help stop the virus from infecting healthy cells in the body. Combivir tablets are taken orally (by mouth) twice a day. Closely follow your healthcare provider's instructions on taking this drug. Missing doses can increase the chance of the virus developing resistance to Combivir, thereby making it less effective.
