AIDS Home > Trizivir Drug Information
Trizivir® (abacavir/lamivudine/zidovudine) is an HIV/AIDS medication that contains three separate active ingredients, each of which belongs to a group of drugs known as nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). These medications work by stopping a process the HIV virus needs in order to multiply. Although Trizivir can help prevent further infection, it is not a cure.
This drug comes in tablet form and is usually taken twice a day. Prior to beginning treatment with Trizivir, information on the drug's precautions and warnings should be reviewed with your healthcare provider. This includes knowing the side effects to watch out for, such as nausea, vomiting, and headaches, and how to properly store this product.
