Description


Uses

Zidovir (Zidovudine) is classified as a nucleoside analog, and it treats HIV infections by inhibiting viral reverse transcriptase and DNA polymerases. The HIV virus needs to replicate its DNA in order to spread and infect more cells. An enzyme called RT (reverse transcriptase) is needed for this to take place, and by blocking RT, this medicine helps to terminate the DNA chain and prevent the virus from multiplying. Improvements in the clinical condition of patients can thereby be achieved. Some researchers have studied it for HIV prevention (prophylaxis).

Dosage and Administration

Zidovir (Zidovudine) comes in tablet form, and the medicine strength of each tablet is 300mg. If you are treating an infection caused by HIV, the physician may instruct you to take 300mg by mouth every 12 hours (equal to 600mg per day). Treatment will continue for as long as your physician deems necessary. Different guidelines may be followed by your physician when determining the dosage for post-exposure prophylaxis or occupational exposure. Therefore, it is important for all patients to strictly follow and comply with the directions given by the physician.
