Description


Uses

Duovir (Lamivudine/Zidovudine) is a combination antiretroviral agent which works by reducing the levels of HIV (viral road) in the body. The Duovir-N version also contains nevirapine (a type of non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor or NNRTI), in addition to the two other aforementioned ingredients. Combining multiple fixed doses into a single pill increases the medicine`s effects against the HIV virus. By affecting viral reverse transcriptase, it helps to inhibit the spread of the virus, while also increasing the amount of CD4 cells, which are important to the immune system.

Dosage and Administration

Duovir (Lamivudine/Zidovudine) tablets contain 150mg of lamivudine and 300mg of zidovudine. The other variety available, Duovir-N (Lamivudine/Zidovudine/Nevirapine) also contains 150mg of lamivudine and 300mg of zidovudine, as well as 200mg of nevirapine. Your physician will decide the required daily dosage and provide you with the necessary details related to the frequency of administration. It is essential that you fully comply with all directions given by your physician. Do not take more than the correct daily dosage, as this could put you at risk of serious health problems.

Side effects

Patients undergoing antiretroviral treatment with Duovir (Lamivudine/Zidovudine) or Duovir-N (Lamivudine/Zidovudine/Nevirapine) should be aware that side effects are possible. These may include:

  • Headaches
  • A blocked nose
  • Body fat movement
  • Discomfort in the sinuses
  • Insomnia or possible fatigue

The above mentioned side effects are usually considered mild, and patients should note that other reactions may also occur. Serious adverse events are generally less common. However, you must get to the hospital or consult a physician immediately if you notice aching of the muscles which does not go away, sores on the skin, soreness in the back that is severe, difficulty walking properly, tremors and any other severe side effects that have not been referenced here.

Precautions

Treatment of HIV with Duovir (Lamivudine/Zidovudine) or Duovir-N (Lamivudine/Zidovudine/Nevirapine) cannot cure the virus. It will only help your body deal with and fight the infection. Therefore, it is essential that patients are aware of the risk posed to others who they may be in contact with. Take every necessary precaution to ensure that you do not infect anybody else with HIV.

Certain cases in which patients developed a severe and potentially life threatening disorder known as lactic acidosis have been reported. Ask your physician about the symptoms of this condition and get immediate medical help if you believe that you are affected by this condition.
